It is our pleasure to welcome you to the eigth FEBS Advanced Lecture Course on Human Fungal Pathogens - Molecular Mechanisms of Host-Pathogen Interactions and Virulence.
We invite you to La Colle sur Loup in France, from May 18-24, 2019.
The increasing resistance of fungal species against available antifungals, the outbreak of novel multidrug resistant fungal species and the relative lack of novel therapies or antifungal strategies pose a serious challenge to affected patients. Though discouraging in some sense, it should motivate us as scientists to continue performing state-of-the-art research trying to improve our understanding on the molecular mechanisms by which these fungi cause virulence and disease. To encourage collaboration and broaden our perspectives on the study subjects, we present the following topics to be covered during HFP2019:
- Genomics, evaluation and epidemiology
- Molecular and cell biology
- Novel tools and antifungal strategies
- Mycobiome and host-pathogen interactions
Registration fees including full board :
- Master and PhD students, postdoctoral researchers: 900 euro
- Principal investigators: 1300 euro
- Industry: 1800 euro
Grants will be available from FEBS and FEMS. These will reimburse all costs except travel expenses.
Other grants reimbursing parts of the registration fee will also be available.
HFP2019 is hosted at Belambra Club "Les Terrasses de St Paul-de-Vence", Chemin de Montmeuille
06480, La Colle sur Loup.
All guests will stay in appartments with two bedrooms and a shared bathroom.
Apart from the nice appartments, the venue offers a bar, restaurant, outdoor swimming pool, TV room, sports terrains, etc. Spending time in the beautiful countryside is also recommended as well as a visit to neighbouring villages, such as Saint-Paul de Vence.
The international airport of Nice is located about 12 kilometers from the venue in La Colle sur Loup. There will be shuttle busses driving from the airport to the venue.
You can also take the train to the train station of Antibes, where our shuttle busses will pick you up and drive you to the venue.
