Lasse van Wijlick obtained his PhD at the Heinrich-Heine-University in Düsseldorf (Germany) in the unit of Prof. Joachim F. Ernst, working on transcriptional adaptation to host environmental conditions of the important human fungal pathogen Candida albicans. In 2017, Lasse joined the Fungal Biology and Pathogenicity Unit at Institut Pasteur as a Post-doc to continue his work on transcriptional networks in Candida albicans.
Candida albicans colonization of abiotic and biotic surfaces
Biofilms formed by C. albicans on indwelling devices play a major role in the persistence of nosocomial infections, largely because of their elevated tolerance to antifungals. The Fungal Biology and Pathogenicity Unit at Institut […]
Regulation of Candida albicans morphogenesis
The Fungal Biology and Pathogenicity Unit at Institut Pasteur is interested in the regulation of the yeast-to-hypha transition in C. albicans because of its role in biofilm formation and, more generally, in virulence. While […]
