Fisher Lab

Fungal genomics, evolution & epidemiology

We are a research group based at Imperial College London's Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at St. Mary's Hospital in London working on Emerging Fungal Pathogens. Our group is focused on developing genomic, epidemiological and experimental models to uncover the factors driving these diseases, and to attempt to develop new methods of control. Current interests include mapping the global expansion of fungal disease, research on the ecology and drivers of amphibian skin-infecting chytrids and tracing the evolution of drug-resistance in human fungal pathogens.
