About Us

The Aspergillus Website serves many different audiences; researcher, doctor, patients & carers and those who just want to find out more about the fungus Aspergillus and the illnesses it causes - of which there are many - see 'Our visitors' on the right. It has served those audiences since 1998 so has a considerable history - with over 42 000 registered users and many more unregistered.

The Aspergillus Website is funded mainly by the Fungal Infection Trust (www.fungalinfectiontrust.org)

This Website forms part of the work carried out by the Aspergillus Website team, based at the NHS National Aspergillosis Centre (NAC) and University of Manchester. We also provide an important website for the support of our patients & carers communities in the UK & USA - also accessed by virtually every country in the world, providing information & awareness as well as social support.

For patients who attend our clinics we have our monthly meetings here at the NAC. These meetings are broadcast live and recorded for future use. For those patients & carers who cannot attend out meetings we offer our quarterly 'Aspergillosis Community' booklets which are available to pickup at clinic or via our regional support groups.

There are also very popular online support groups on Yahoo! and Facebook, and well attended groups for professionals on LinkedIn; The Aspergillus & Aspergillosis Group and the Damp buildings and Human Health Group (in collaboration with Institute of Specialist Surveyors and Engineers).
