MRC Centre for Medical Mycology
The Aberdeen Fungal Group was awarded MRC Centre status in 2016, and the new MRC Centre for Medical Mycology (MRC CMM) at the University of Aberdeen will spearhead innovative research and training to generate knowledge that will improve the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of fungal diseases. The MRC CMM represents a joint £6.5m investment by both the MRC and the University of Aberdeen.
The major objectives of our new Centre are to make major scientific advances in areas of urgent medical need, to translate research discoveries into the clinic and industry, to increase future capacity by training the next generation of basic and clinical mycologists, and to raise public awareness of the significant impact of fungal infections on human health.
Funding is available for Early Career Fellowships, Clinical Fellowships, MRes-PhD Studentships and Medical Student Summer Scholarships. To find out more about the Centre and these funding opportunities please follow the link below.
