LIVING WITH IT WORKING WITH IT TREATING IT
Research objectives supported by NIOSH include, but are not limited to, the following:
The research must apply to workers and occupational safety and health. As an example, this program has supported research on Coccidioidomycosis and farm workers. You may contact Maria Lioce ([email protected])at the CDC to determine if your project is responsive.
Important information for young researchers applying for NIH grants.
NIH goal is to increase the number of NIH-funded early-stage investigators and assure, as best they can, that funded early-stage investigators have a reasonable chance to secure stable funding during the earliest stages of their independent research careers.
“Chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA) is a severe fungal infection with a high morbidity and mortality, and is usually seen in immunocompetent patients with respiratory disorders. Clinical presentation is nonspecific and often overlaps with the symptoms and the radiological pattern caused by the underlying disease. Clinical management of CPA is further hampered by limited information about the epidemiology, disease dynamics, sensitivity and specificity of different mycological tests, mechanisms of antifungal resistance, efficient treatment and management strategies. In order to contribute to a better understanding and to improve CPA patient management and outcome, we established in March 2017 the Chronic Pulmonary Aspergillosis Network (CPAnet), a self-organized multinational research collaboration to promote clinically oriented research in the field of CPA by sharing and developing research ideas and protocols. (Godet C. et al. JAC 2018).”

These webinars are presented by industry leaders including David Gallup, Dr. Harriet Burge, and Dr. Michael Berg.
Continuing Education: Our webinars are approved for technical credit hours at many organizations including: ABIH, ACAC, BCSP, BCRSP, CRBOH, HIABC, and InterNACHI.
The authors set up the database FunResDB (www.nrz-myk.de/funresdb) to gather all available information about CYP51A-dependent azole resistance from published literature. In summary, the screening resulted in 79 CYP51A variants, which are linked to 59 nonsynonymous mutations. A tailor-made online sequence analysis tool allows for genotypic susceptibility testing of A. fumigatus .
With an estimated 1.5 million species, Fungi represent one of the largest branches of the Tree of Life. They have an enormous impact on human affairs and ecosystem functioning, owing to their diverse activities as decomposers, pathogens, and mutualistic symbionts. And perhaps more than any other group of nonphotosynthetic organisms, fungi are essential biological components of the global carbon cycle. Collectively, they are capable of degrading almost any naturally occurring biopolymer and numerous human-made ones. As such, fungi hold considerable promise in the development of alternative fuels, carbon sequestration and bioremediation of contaminated ecosystems.
The use of fungi for the continued benefit of humankind, however, requires an accurate understanding of how they interact in natural and synthetic communities. The ability to sample environments for complex fungal metagenomes is rapidly becoming a reality and will play an important part in harnessing fungi for industrial, energy and climate management purposes. However, our ability to accurately analyze these data relies on well-characterized, foundational reference data of fungal genomes.
To bridge this gap in our understanding of fungal diversity, an international research team in collaboration with the Joint Genome Institute of the Department of Energy has embarked on a five-year project to sequence 1000 fungal genomes from across the Fungal Tree of Life.
A company supporting microbiology & infectious diseases research by providing access to reagents & cultures.
The Protein Data Bank (PDB) archive is the single worldwide repository of information about the 3D structures of large biological molecules, including proteins and nucleic acids. These are the molecules of life that are found in all organisms including bacteria, yeast, plants, flies, other animals, and humans. Understanding the shape of a molecule deduce a structure's role in human health and disease, and in drug development. The structures in the archive range from tiny proteins and bits of DNA to complex molecular machines like the ribosome.
