ISHAM Award for Prof Malcolm Richardson
By GAtherton
Founded in 1954, the International Society for Human and Animal Mycology (ISHAM) is a large worldwide organisation that represents and supports all doctors and researchers that have an interest in Medical Mycology – which includes aspergillosis as well as all fungal disease.

Fungal diseases are generally not given the attention that they deserve from medical authorities so it is vital that diagnostics and research are supported internationally, especially where health services, so the work of ISHAM is particularly valuable.


The immense contribution of medical mycology diagnostics specialist and former Director of the Mycology Reference Centre Manchester Prof Malcolm Richardson to the work of ISHAM has been recognised at the recent ISHAM conference in New Delhi, September 2022.
