This conference brings together fungal biologists working on most major fungal systems and promotes communication and collaboration between researchers working on fungi that cause disease on humans and those working on plant pathogens, saprobes and symbiotic fungi. This interaction allows students working on fungi to find and pursue opportunities for research careers in Infectious diseases towards reducing the impact of fungi on human health. Fungi also serve as important model systems to understand human disease based on the presence in fungi of many genes related to those involved in animal diseases.
