First FunComPath Annual meeting in Gothenburg
March 10, 2016
On March 08 - 09, 2016 our FunComPath consortium met for the first annual meeting at the Chalmers University of Technology (Partner 5: Jens Nielsen and Boyang Ji) in Gothenburg, Sweden. After a joint dinner in the evening, each partner team presented their latest results and progress of the different work packages (WP 1-5) on the next day. First promising insights into the molecular mechanisms associated with shift of Candida albicans from commensalism to pathogenicity and the protective role of probiotic bacteria and yeasts were presented and all projects were intensively discussed in a very constructive atmosphere. The consortium decided to have the next meetings in Madrid (spring 2017) and Paris (spring 2018).
