ECCMID 2020

I look very much forward to the annual European Congress in Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, which this year will take place in April in Paris.

Apart from catching up with colleagues, a few of whom I've known for about 15 years, one of the things that I really look forward to is a session that I'll be co-chairing with Prof Laurence Delhaes with the title

The gut microbiome: not only bacteria, but also parasites and fungi!
It's a 2-hour symposium including these talks and presenters:


Does a healthy gut microbiome include parasites and yeast?
Dr. Pauline Scanlan
 
Within population diversification and evolution in the host
Dr. Daniel Lopez
 
The unexplored diversity of the gut microbiome: how can we profile yeasts and protozoa from metagenomics?
Prof. Nicola Segata
 
The microbiota of parasites
Dr. Cinzia Cantacessi

The symposium is co-organised by ESGS - ESCMID Study Group for Staphylococci and Staphylococcal Diseases, ESGPHM - ESCMID Study Group for Public Health Microbiology, ESGNI - ESCMID Study Group for Nosocomial Infections
