MNID is back!

The only regional meeting focusing on fungal and parasitic infections, an excellent opportunity for the Midwest mycology and parasitology community to meet in a relatively small group and learn from each other. We have a great lineup of speakers and plenty of opportunities for trainees to present and get feedback on their work.
