The Veterinary Mycology Working Group has been established in 2010 by a group of experts under the umbrella of International Society for Human and Animal Mycology (ISHAM) to support all scientific aspects that deals with mycology and veterinary sciences, including:
We aim to share expertise among all countries around the globe to provide a strong framework of existing knowledge, as we may learn a lot from each other. We collaborate with other ISHAM-working groups, international societies, regulatory agencies and governmental authorities.
The ISHAM-Veterinary Mycology Working Group has more than 100 expert members from all around the world. To join our team, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
