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.

As part of the MRes component of the MRes/PhD programme students undertake a 2-day visit to Public Health England for a lecture and practical workshop in fungal diagnostic and identification procedures for clinical samples. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a greater appreciation of the current state of the art and of the challenges faced in diagnosing fungal infections in patients.
