8th Cuban Congress on Microbiology and Parasitology

14.10.2014 - 16.10.2014 All day

In view of the impact of the emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases and particularly the resistance to antibiotics, these congresses organized by the Cuban Society of Microbiology and Parasitology will provide the perfect setting for delegates to update, discuss and exchange on the role of Microbiology and Parasitology facing this emergent topic. A symposium on antimicrobial resistance will be organized to updating delegates in this important topic and how to face it.
Requested support will allow some interested participants to cover their registration or attendance to present their results.


ESCMID participates in the Organizing Committee and sponsors attendance grants for “young scientist members”.
