The aim of this meeting is to bring together the academic, medical and pharmaceutical communities focused on fungal microbial pathogens of humans and other animals to illustrate common themes, and therapeutic, diagnostic and preventive opportunities. We seek to bridge both basic and physician-scientists working on the pathogenic microbe (via genetics, cell biology, genomics) and the host (immunology, including both innate and adaptive immunity). With respect to therapeutics, the emphasis is on developed as well as novel therapeutics, including both drugs and vaccines. A key aspect is to bridge the communities working on the diversity of fungi that infect humans and those working on the chytrid outbreak causing amphibian decline and extinctions. Opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will be significantly enhanced by the concurrent meeting on Drug Discovery for Protozoan Parasites, which will share the keynote address and two plenary sessions with this meeting.
