Registrations Close January 15th 2021 or until sold out

Postponed until Saturday January 30th 2021

After careful consideration and in response to the continuing developments surrounding COVID-19, The NCIC Symposium Organising Committee have made the decision to postpone the two NCIC Symposia: Antibiotic Allergy in Practice & Fungal Infections in Focus.

Originally scheduled for June 6th 2020, the Symposium will now be held on Saturday January 30th 2021, to align with the postponement of the ICHS Symposium on Infections in the Immunocompromised Host. The Symposium will continue to be held at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, with the format remaining unchanged.
