Durham, N.C. — Please join us for a symposium at Duke University April 5-6, 2012 in celebration of mycology and mycologists. During this meeting, we will review the latest exciting breakthroughs in the field, including fungal biology virulence and novel ways to intervene therapeutically, and enrich our scientific community through shared interests and visions. More than a dozen alumni who trained at Duke and are now leading investigators internationally are returning to campus for this spring event to share their latest research findings.

Many of our returning fellows are alumni of the Duke-sponsored Molecular Mycology and Pathogenesis Tri-Institutional Training Program (MMPTP) that supports fellows at Duke University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University in Raleigh. We look forward to bringing them together with current fellows and training faculty of the program as well as with outstanding colleagues from other institutions,
including Aaron Mitchell, Jim Kronstad, June Kwon-Chung, Arturo Casadevall, Bill Goldman, Leah Cowen, Anne Dranginis, and Rao Movva.
