Welcome to the Medical Research Council Centre for Medical Mycology.

Our vision is to facilitate innovative interdisciplinary research and training that will substantially advance our understanding of fungal pathogenesis and host immunity.

We are generating knowledge that has the potential to improve the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of fungal diseases, an area of infectious disease that has enormous impact on human health.
