We look for antifungal drugs as a part of a European consortium


On October 1, 2013, our new European project entitled Molecular Mechanisms of Human Fungal Pathogen Host Interaction (ImResFun, FP7-PEOPLE-2013-ITN ) has started. In the consortium composed of nine laboratories and three companies from nine European countries, we will study the interaction of pathogenic yeasts with cells, tissues and organs of the host. Our aim is to identify so far unknown targets in pathogenic yeasts for the development of new antifungal drugs.
