Welcome to Charleston!
Dear Conference Attendees,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 8th International Conference on Cryptococcus and Cryptococcosis (ICCC). We have been fortunate to assemble a prestigious International group of experts to discuss the latest advances in epidemiology, physiopathology, immunology, genomic and proteomic of Cryptococcus along with clinical aspects of managing cryptococcosis. We are looking forward to this event in May, 2011 which is being administered by the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and the ICCC.
We believe that you will enjoy the historic setting of the Francis Marion Hotel and the memories Charleston will instill for years to come. The exceptional location provides you with an easy walk to an array of shops, restaurants, antiques and attractions, including the South Carolina Aquarium, Charleston Harbor Tours and the Charleston Visitor Center.
Please feel free to contact me or any member of the MUSC staff concerning any questions or concerns that may arise during the conference. We look forward to serving you and make this the best educational and academic experience possible.
