Global fungal killers and life-threatening infections

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

Research & Science
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.

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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

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.
