My laboratory studies various aspects of this host-pathogen interaction in an effort to better understand the pathogenic mechanisms of the fungus and immune susceptibility in these patients, with a goal of improving therapy.

Past or Present Projects Available:

Molecular interactions with host endothelial cells; Screening for virulence properties; Neonatal colonization studies
