Medical Mycology Course in Africa
The Molecular Mycology Unit (Institut Pasteur), the AFGrica Unit (University of Aberdeen & University of Cape Town) and the AMBITION-cm Trial Consortium are pleased to announce a one-week English-speaking course for scientists and clinicians […]
Improve molecular methods to detect Histoplasma capsulatum in humans
Histoplasmosis is an endemic mycosis caused by the dimorphic fungus Histoplasma capsulatum. It is found as a mold in the environment and as a yeast at body temperature during infection. This organism is endemic […]
Understanding the genesis of the Titan cells in Cryptococcus neoformans
The pathogenic yeast Cryptococcus neoformans undergoes morphological changes in cell size during host interaction, producing a high percentage of Titan cells (> 10 μm) instead of the typical size 5 to 7 μm cells. We […]
Molecular variability of Pneumocystis jirovecii: from genotype to antigenic variability
Pneumocystis jirovecii is an atypical fungus responsible for severe life-threatening pneumonia (pneumocystosis) in immunocompromised patients such as HIV positive patients, solid organ transplant recipients, patients with solid tumors or hematological malignancy, and patients receiving […]
CryptoVIEW: Unraveling pathogenesis of Cryptococcosis using optical and multimodal visualizaion of enigmatic events and virulence aspects in vivo.
Cryptococcus neoformans and C. gattii are encapsulated yeasts that can cause life-threatening disease; mainly in immune-suppressed patients, but also in immune-competent individuals. Cryptococcosis affects the lung and may spread to the brain, manifesting itself […]
High Dose AMBISOME on a Fluconazole Backbone for Cryptococcal Meningitis Induction Therapy in sub-Saharan Africa: A Phase 3 Randomised Controlled Non-Inferiority Trial This ongoing multi-centre clinical trial (ISRCTN72509687), sponsored by the London School of […]
Deciphering dormancy in Cryptocococcus neoformans
Cryptococcus neoformans is a sugar-coated yeast that is able to interact closely with numerous organisms in the environment including amebae, paramecium of nematodes. The interaction with these organisms probably shaped its virulence. The ability […]

Epidemiological studies on invasive fungal infections
Compared with other infectious diseases, invasive mycoses are neglected diseases. They remained poorly known, underdiagnosed and understudied in many countries around the world despite the increasing public health burden they represent now. The population […]
Databases on the epidemiology of invasive fungal infections in France
A nationwide network of dedicated clinicians and microbiologists/mycologists composing the French Mycoses Study Group who diagnose and treat the patients with invasive fungal infections contribute to the surveillance programs by notifying their cases through […]
