6. FEBS Advanced Lecture Course

Human Fungal Pathogens: Molecular Mechanisms of Host-Pathogen Interactions and Virulence

16. - 22.05.2015, La Colle sur Loup, France


The course has been designed to provide the students with both an overview of the current knowledge and an update on the most recent advancements in several fields that encompass most of the molecular research conducted on fungal pathogens.

Fungal infections pose a prominent problem for public health. Research on human fungal pathogens has become a very active field over the last two decades. The progressive availability of the genome sequences of the main fungal pathogens of humans and related species has now resulted in a major shift in the strategies that can be applied to study these species that are frequently hard to tackle with standard molecular genetic approaches. Reverse genetics, transcript profiling, proteomics, etc. are yielding important discoveries on the molecular and cell biology of the fungal pathogens and their interaction with host cells. Also the knowledge on how the host is able to fend off fungal attacks has increased significantly. The following topics will be covered in main symposia: genomics, evolution and
epidemiology, molecular and cell biology of fungal pathogens, antifungal strategies and mechanisms of resistance and host-pathogen interactions. An interactive workshop will address mammalian and non-mammalian models of fungal infection. These symposia will be mirrored by workshops and poster sessions providing the participants with the
opportunity to present their results.

The organization of this Advanced Lecture Course is made possible through support from the Federation of the European Biochemical Societies.
