ESCMID Study Groups

ESCMID supports a wide array of Study Groups (SGs) engaged in advancing scientific knowledge and/or disseminating professional guidelines in the field of clinical microbiology and infectious diseases. ESCMID demands a high level of activity (for a recent overview of activities, see here) and offers funding of these activities (see here). The SGs are overseen and annually evaluated by the Scientific Affairs Subcommittee (see here). The table below lists all current SGs and from there you can go to the individual SG websites directly.
