The Medical Mycology Society of Nigeria is an interdisciplinary professional society focused on generating much needed public health data on serious fungal infections in Nigeria and driving advocacy for better care of populations at risk.
The society also holds an annual invasive fungal infection forum (IFIF) to promote awareness amongst health care practitioners and train laboratory personnel to diagnose fungal infections.
This year’s Fungal Update Meeting is ongoing (15th and 16th, March, 2019) at the QE2 conference centre, London, UK.
The meeting, now in its 14th year, is the largest mycosis focused specialist meeting in the UK.
MMSN president, Dr Rita Oladele, in her usual trailblazing style, picked up a prize for best abstract following her presentation on ‘Standardisation of Aspergillus IgG in Nigerians’. Co-awardees were Toine Mercer and Nicole Pagani. The prizes were sponsored by Journal of Fungi, an open access journal sponsored by MDPI.
Here is to future outstanding achievements to MMSN and all her members. Cheers!
