ESCMID’s continued success has brought with it a reorganization of its Executive Office to drive forward the pursuit of its mission to improve the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infection-related diseases. More announcements will follow to introduce the new structure. In the course of this reorganization, Executive Director Judith Zimmermann has left the Executive Office to pursue a career outside ESCMID. We thank Judith for her work for the society and wish her all the best for her future career. The Executive Office staff are at your disposal to support you and help ESCMID fulfil its mission.
