Across Time and Space - a New Understanding of Pathogenic and Protective Host Responses During Viral Infection.

Despite vaccination and direct-acting antivirals, viral pathogens like influenza viruses and coronaviruses, continue to exert an enormous burden on human health and society, made worse by their pandemic potential. Read more

The impact of nutritional scavenging on host-pathogen interactions, antifungal efficacy and emergence of antifungal resistance

Infections caused by Aspergillus fumigatus (Af) cause more deaths globally than any other fungal disease. Over 20 million are affected annually with four million having life threatening invasive and chronic infections with high morbidity and mortality up to 90%. Read more

Dysfunctional antifungal potency of the respiratory mucosa in COPD

Inhalation of Aspergillus fumigatus spores cause >3,000,000 chronic and >200,000 invasive diseases annually worldwide. Invasive aspergillosis carries a 50% mortality rate overall, but mortality rate approaches 100% if diagnosis is delayed or missed and it is >75% in certain cohorts of patients, such as COPD sufferers.
