Fungal pathogens threaten our health and kill over a million worldwide. In this project, we will deploy cutting-edge chromatin genetics and medical mycology to better understand how pathogenic fungi sense and adapt to the human host. Our goal is to open novel paths to interfere with fungal disease.
