Research Summary

We are interested in understanding complicated genetic networks in fungal pathogens. Focusing primarily on the common yeast pathogen Candida albicans and the emerging pathogen Candida auris, our lab is developing and optimizing novel CRISPR based functional genomic technologies and using them to modulate the fungal genome on a large scale. We are applying these technologies for large-scale functional genomic screening, in order to understand the genes and genetic interactions that underly fungal pathogenesis (including cellular morphogenesis and biofilm formation), the evolution of antifungal drug resistance.
