Laxmi Rai obtained his Ph.D at Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (India), working on histone H3 variants in the pathogenic yeast Candida albicans, with Prof. Kaustuv Sanyal. In 2017, Laxmi joined the Fungal Biology and Pathogenicity Unit at Institut Pasteur as a Post-doctoral researcher to work on C. albicans biofilm gene complexity using over-expression strategy.
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 […]
