Save the date for Keystone Symposia's meeting on "Fungal Pathogens: From Basic Biology to Drug Discovery" to be held January 15-20, 2012 at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Organized by Joseph Heitman of Duke University, John Taylor of UC Berkeley and Leah E. Cowen of the University of Toronto, it will focus on diverse pathogens responsible for alarming outbreaks of human disease (e.g., Histoplasma, Coccidioides, and the Cryptococcus gattii) as well as for amphibian extinctions and threats to agriculture and world food supplies. Jointly held with a meeting on “Drug Discovery for Protozoan Parasites,” it will provide an outstanding interactive environment to educate graduate students and trainees regarding current approaches in medical mycology and an opportunity to obtain mentoring on issues spanning grant writing, career development and publication in top-tier journals. Four days of plenary and poster sessions will include ample free time for informal networking and collaboration-building. The abstract submission and student/postdoc scholarship application deadline is September 19, 2011, and for scientists from developing countries, the Global Health Travel Award application deadline is August 16, 2011.
