LIVING WITH IT WORKING WITH IT TREATING IT
The European Paediatric Mycology Network (EPMyN) was launched in 2014 to create a European platform for research and education in the field of Paediatric Mycology. Its aim is to increase the knowledge of the epidemiology and pathogenesis and to improve the management of invasive fungal infections in neonates and children.
The objectives of the EPMyN are:
Current activities are focussed on collecting the necessary information about the current management of invasive fungal infections in children and neonates from a large number of European centres. This information will be collected by an electronic survey and the data will be captured in the REDCap database. The results of this survey are expected to define specific areas of future research and will emphasize difficulties encountered in our daily practice which need to be addressed.
Our first post-graduate course in Paediatric Mycology is taking place on October 12-13, 2015 in Lisbon, Portugal (just after the Trends in Medical Mycology 2015). This post-graduate course specifically targets paediatric infectious diseases specialists, paediatric hemato-oncologists and immunologists, paediatric pulmonologists and neonatologists (and those in training).
Steering group: Adilia Warris (chair), Andreas Groll, Andrew Cant, Carlo Giaquinto, Elio Castagnola, Emmanuel Roilides, Irja Lutsar, Mike Sharland, Nigel Klein, Paolo Manzoni, Roger Brüggemann, Thomas Lehrnbecher.
