Welcome note

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Colleagues!

We hereby cordially invite you to the 57th Annual Scientific Meeting of the German-speaking Mycological Society - "Myk 2023" in Frankfurt am Main. This year's Myk will take place in the conference center of the Spenerhaus/Dominikanerkloster in the heart of Frankfurt. We are very pleased to welcome you in the historical ambience of the Dominican Monastery for an interdisciplinary scientific exchange.

Fungal infections are one of the major medical challenges in clinical practice. Therefore, as always, the conference will focus on diverse aspects and new developments concerning the clinic, diagnostics, therapy and pathogenesis of superficial and invasive fungal infections. Other focal points this year include the care of patients treated with novel immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory therapies and new antifungal agents for fungal infections. We also look forward to you enriching the meeting with your experiences and results from clinical practice, diagnostics and basic research.

Of course, this year's annual meeting will also offer you the opportunity for an extensive professional dialogue with colleagues from science and practice as well as with representatives from industry. The "get-together" evening and our social evening, to which we cordially invite you, will provide an opportunity for personal discussion and getting to know each other.

The central location of the conference venue will also enable you to get to know the multifaceted metropolis of Frankfurt on the Main River on the fringes of the conference, e.g. by taking a stroll through Frankfurt's new Old Town, along the museum embankment or by visiting historical sights such as St. Paul's Church or the Goethe House.

We look forward to your participation and hope to see as many of you as possible in Frankfurt am Main.
