Executive Committee 2017 election results

At the end of 2017 elections were held among the membership to fill three positions in the ESCMID Executive Committee, two representing infectious diseases and one for clinical microbiology.

We are pleased to present two new members and one re-elected member of the ESCMID Executive Committee, whose terms of office will start immediately after the 2018 Assembly of Members in Madrid, Spain.

We thank all candidates for their interest and for actively participating in the electoral procedure. This year's EC election has seen a record participation from its voting members. We thank you for your lively interest in our society.
