UQ study targets lethal fungal infection
The development of new drugs to fight a common fungal pathogen which kills half a million people globally each year is a step closer thanks to a University of Queensland-led study.
AID researchers are drawn from infectious disease experts from across QIMR and UQ who apply leading technologies to identify, understand and prevent infectious disease.
The core AID research themes are bacterial, viral, parasitic and fungal infectious diseases afflicting humans. This microbial pathogenesis research effort brings together basic science and clinical research.
AID links molecular microbiological and clinical expertise from the UQ Faculties of Science and Health Sciences, and UQCCR, UQCCHR, IMB, AIBN and the Diamantina Institute.
