18th Congress of the International Society for Human and Animal Mycology 2012 (ISHAM 2012)

11.06.2012 - 15.06.2012 All day

The 17th Congress of the International Society for Human and Animal Mycology, organized in May 2009 by Hideoki Ogawa and his colleagues from the Japanese Society for Medical Mycology in Tokyo, Japan, was very successful. Approximately 1000 participants enjoyed this outstanding meeting. Those of you who have had the opportunity to attend previous ISHAM meetings will agree that this congress is the most important international event in the field of experimental and medical mycology.

It is our privilege to organize ISHAM 2012 in Berlin, the vibrant capital of Germany and one of the world’s fastest changing megacities. A fascinating process of innovation and a unique scientific, cultural and political tradition are its hallmarks. Berlin is the place where Rudolf Virchow, Robert Koch and many other prominent medical scientists spent most of their professional lives. Rudolf Virchow is said to have coined the term “mycoses,” which later became the name of the official journal of the “Deutschsprachige Mykologische Gesellschaft”.
