On behalf of the Scientific Committee, we are pleased to invite you to the 25th Educational Course of the Infectious Diseases Working Party (IDWP) of the EBMT that will be held in Florence on 3rd-5th November 2022.

After two years in which it was not possible to hold the event face to face for the safety of the participants, the speakers, our partners and the EBMT staff due to COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event is planned face to face to encourage interactive discussion, share clinical cases, and have the opportunity of interacting with top speakers.Adequate management of transplant infectious complications is of paramount importance to improve patient outcome following hematopoietic cell transplantation or CAR-T therapy.

The course will discuss the current expert knowledge and updated guidelines together with the most recent developments in the field of infectious complications. The program focuses on the practical management of infective complications in adults and in children, and on the modalities of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of fungal, bacterial, and viral infections. The aim is to highlight the advancements obtained in the recent years in order to improve treatment and outcome of HSCT patients.

We look forward to welcoming you in Florence and kindly encourage you to support this meeting.
