The 4th Symposium on Infectious Diseases in the Immunocompromised Host brings together leaders and trainees in research and clinical care of infectious diseases in the immunocompromised host. Pre-symposium mentor/trainee related events begin Sunday, April 30th.
All attendees will be treated to an evening reception at the Seattle Art Museum!
Our program features outstanding, internationally recognized experts in the field, representing more than 20 institutions, who will speak on topics including infections in solid organ transplant, hematopoietic cell transplant and oncology. The symposium will address COVID-19, fungal disease, respiratory viruses, CMV, HHV-6, immunotherapy, the microbiome, and antimicrobial stewardship. Speakers will cover controversies in the field through multiple panel discussions with audience response opportunities for an interactive two-day symposium.
The travel stipend program* is available to encourage trainees (including medical students, graduate students, residents and fellows) with interest in infectious diseases in immunocompromised patients. Please extend this announcement to any eligible trainees whose scope of work and/or interest relate to this area.
All stipends will include the opportunity for trainees from around the world to attend a dinner with one or more leading researchers to learn, engage and build new mentor-mentee relationships.
Select trainees will have the opportunity to present posters on their own research during lunch hour poster sessions.
* Local trainees in the greater Seattle area are also welcome to apply to receive a registration fee waiver, invitation to the mentor-mentee dinners and/or to submit an abstract proposal.
Please email IDsymposium@fredhutch.org for assistance.
We look forward to seeing you at the conference.
COVID-19 safety is the first and foremost consideration for this event. We believe we have found a location for the symposium that meets this need. Details will follow.
