Fusarium infections: molecular biology and diagnostics of an underestimated pathogen

The research group FusInfect is integrated into the structural unit (Epi-)Genetic Regulation of Fungal Virulence focusing on virulence mechanisms and diagnostics of the opportunistic human pathogen Fusarium. The project is carried out in close collaboration with the co-applicant Dr. Grit Walther from the National Reference Center for Invasive Fungal Infections (NRZMyk). It is financed by the Free State of Thuringia and the European Social Fund Plus (ESF).
