Description

As a follow up to our Advanced Course, we are excited to announce a “Hot Topics Symposium on Infections in Immunocompromised Host (ICH)”. This year’s program will be a 1.5 day symposium covering focused and topical areas, and will be strongly weighted toward clinical case and panel discussions. Areas such as Cytomegalovirus (CMV) therapeutics, donor derived infections, clinical utility of measuring net state of immunosuppression, emerging immune response to fungi and antimicrobial resistance in ICH, are a few examples of what will be covered. We are excited to announce that Prof. Emily Blumberg from the University of Pennsylvania will be our international educator this year. Prof. Blumberg is one of the leading transplant physicians and has been heavily involved in teaching and research in Transplant Infectious Diseases.
