The International Pediatric Fungal Network is a collaborative group of investigators and centers focused on pediatric invasive fungal infections. This Network is uniquely comprised of expert pediatric investigators dedicated to developing the optimal care for children with these life-threatening infections.


 Our mission is to:

  • Investigate by conducting reseach about the epidemiology, treatment and outcomes of pediatric invasive fungal infections
  • Educate by acting as the expert source for clinicians regarding diagnostic and treatment strategies for children
  • Discover by serving as a cohesive vehicle for pediatric-dedicated clinical trials

​Duke University and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia serve as the coordinating centers for the International Pediatric Fungal Network (IPFN).
