IUSTI Europe Scientific Council
Scientific Topic Reports
Basic science, clinical science and epidemiology are the drivers of excellence in clinical care, management guidelines and knowledge of the infections and conditions we encounter. IUSTI-Europe has set up a Scientific Council of European experts and researchers in the topics we confront in practice. The concept is to inform us of the most up-to-date research and practice in each topic, the direction research is taking us, and to provide a resource for teaching, and planning meetings, both national and international.
I am personally delighted and honoured with the traction of this concept and the input and great care all the contributors have taken in producing their reports. It bodes well for the potential of our specialty in Europe.
I would welcome suggestions of further topics and contributors. I hope these Topic Reports provide a useful resource for us all.
