A Month in the Life of a CPA Patient

Stewart Armstrong has chronic pulmonary aspergillosis and has undertaken to record a video of every day of his life for a month in order to help raise awareness of aspergillosis and how it impacts their daily lives.

All day in hospital

I have Sarcoidosis, Chronic Pulmonary Aspergillosis (CPA) and a very low CD4 count. I have challenged myself to do a daily vlog for 30 days

Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2016: Killer Fungus

Global fungal killers and life-threatening infections

Fungi are everywhere, and a few species can cause very serious lethal infections. Fungal infections

Indoor Air
CIBSE ASHRAE Group - Unclean, unclean! Health threats from ventilation and air conditioning

The role of poorly maintained ventilation ductwork in spreading airborne infections is largely ignored because it is ‘out of sight out of mind’, but recent analysis by healthcare professionals confirms that the risks are increasing.

Future of Food Summit 2015 - Aflatoxin

This panel considers and debates one of the greatest obstacles to food security in many parts of the world: mycotoxin. Aflatoxin is a particularly dangerous mycotoxin produced predominantly by two Aspergillus fungi.

Azole Resistance in Aspergillus Isolates: Multicentre Study
The host-pathogen struggle for nutrients

We can view an infection as a battle between the human host and the microbial invader. The outcome of which decides whether the host remains healthy or succumbs to disease.

Our microscopic army against fungal killers

Cryptococcus, like many fungi, produces spores that are found in the air that we breathe. These spores will be inhaled into our lungs but they do not cause any harm because of our immune defences.

The heat is on; cooling down the response to Aspergillus

My research is focused on infections caused by Aspergillus, which is present in the environment all around us.

Human lung cells: a defence against fungal spores

Every day we inhale hundreds of fungal spores but these in healthy individuals are efficiently eliminated by specialist immune cells called phagocytes which engulf and kill them. However, some human illnesses interfere with this defence mecha

The role of mitochondria in fungal pathogenesis

Candida albicans is one of the fungal species most commonly causing life threatening infections in vulnerable patients. Our group is studying the mitochondria in Candida albicans cells.

Dealing with diversity – immune responses to fungi

Fungi are everywhere. They’re present in the air, in our food, some even live inside our bodies. But most of us rarely think about diseases caused by fungi. This is because our defences do a really good job in keeping them in check.
