MNID 2023 flier

MNID is the only regional meeting focused on parasitic and fungal infections.

This is an excellent opportunity for the Midwest parasitology and mycology community to meet in a relatively small group setting, learn from each other, and foster collaborations. It is a fantastic platform for trainees to present their research findings, interact, and network.

A total of 20 talks and 2 poster sessions are planned.
