My research focuses on the regulation of cell shape and stress responses in the opportunistic fungal pathogen Candida albicans. Adaptation to the human host as a commensal and damage caused in the disease state both depend on the fungal organism detecting changes in the environment and developing appropriate responses. We are particularly interested in understanding the contributions of different genes to control of C. albicans filamentation, a key virulence trait.
