Jean Paul LatgéMember of the Scientific Committee
Systemic fungal infections are an increasingly significant medical problem in industrialised and developing countries and recognized as orphan diseases.
However, humans contract fungal diseases that cause severe damage or kill at least as many people as tuberculosis or malaria.
Though fungi infect billions of people every year, their contribution to the global burden is largely underestimated and unrecognized due to the lack of accurate and speedy diagnostic tests for these infections, but also because current systemic antifungal therapies are not always effective and the physiopathology of the disease remains poorly understood.
The purpose of my research is to better understand the biology of the human opportunistic fungal pathogens through genetic, biochemical and immunological approaches to better apprehend the fungal development in the immunocompetent and immunocompromised host.
