A mini-symposium bringing together leading experts in the fields of fungal pathogenesis, immunology, microbial ecology and ‘omics’ technologies took place at Institut Pasteur on Wednesday 23 January 2019. It was organised at part of the official launch of FunHoMic.
Candida albicans colonies alkalinize their environment and produces hyphae
- except in close proximity to each other (Citation: The novel Candida albicans transporter Dur31 Is a multi-stage pathogenicity factor. Mayer FL, Wilson D, Jacobsen ID, Miramón P, Große K, Hube B. PLoS Pathog. 2012;8(3):e1002592.)
Candida albicans yeast and hyphae colonizing oral epithelial cells.
Candida albicans hyphae endocytosed by oral epithelial cells
(Citation: Oral epithelial cells orchestrate innate type 17 responses to
Candida albicans through the virulence factor candidalysin. Verma AH,

Early Stage Researchers (ESR) Projects
13 ESRs will be trained on fungal pathogenesis, immunology, microbial ecology and ‘omics' technologies in FunHoMic. PhD postions are available.
