The projects in the lab address central questions in fungal pathogenesis and host defense: what are the mechanisms of fungal virulence? How does the host-fungal pathogen interaction define progression of infection and disease? How does the innate and adaptive immune system respond to fungi, and what are the key immunological steps required for mobilizing resistance to fungal pathogens? And, how does the host response to fungi go awry, resulting allergic inflammation in response to inhaled mold.
