Award boosts infection research

Professor Julian Naglik has received a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award. This includes £2 million for his research aiming to find new treatments and vaccinations against fungal infections.

 

Every year, around 1.5 million people die of fungal infections. However, little is understood about how the fungi infect and damage human cells.

 

Professor Naglik, who is a programme lead for our Biomedical Research Centre, says: “This is a huge honour and will allow us to really expand the work we have been doing. In the longer term there is potential for our work to have a huge impact for patients.”
