Following on from the great success of this year's 12th Annual Fungal Update, we are now in the process of assembling another excellent programme which promises to deliver further valuable insights, education and updates.  If you have any suggestions of topics or speakers that you would like to be included in the agenda, I encourage you to post these on the Fungal Update Discussion Forum and all ideas will be considered by the organising committee.

This website will be updated as the programme develops and will provide further information in the near future so please check back regularly for news about the agenda, speakers and logistical arrangements. Make sure you join the mailing list above to receive your invitation and we will send you a link to the registration page when it opens.

In the meantime, the videos of all the excellent sessions from the last three Annual Fungal Updates are now available via the relevant links at the top of this page so please feel free to enjoy and share.

Some of the feedback from this year’s meeting is given below and I very much hope that you can join us for what will be another fascinating and valuable meeting in 2018!
