Research Areas: Microbiology, Mycology, RNA Biochemistry
This project is part of a newly established research group that will bring together the study of pathogenic fungi, RNA biology, and extracellular vesicles to better understand and treat fungal infections.
The field of study:
The successful candidate will investigate the field of fungal pathogenesis through the lens of RNA biology. The main topics of the project may include:
- Identification of the small RNA repertoire of fungi during infection.
- Elucidation and characterization of novel RNA regulatory pathways in filamentous fungi.
- Development of potential RNA-based therapeutics against fungal infection.
