Infectious Diseases

Understanding basic mechanisms underlying virulence, pathogenicity and drug resistance in a wide variety of human pathogens

Their research is supported by research grants from the BBSRC, Wellcome Trust, EPSRC, MRC and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

This highly dynamic and multidisciplinary group is focused on understanding basic mechanisms underlying virulence, pathogenicity and drug resistance in a wide variety of human pathogens (viruses, parasites, bacterial and fungal pathogens). The group also investigates the mechanisms by which proteins such as prions may serve as infectious agents. The group includes members of the Kent Fungal Group and the ResistAnce Pathogenicity and Infectious Diseases (RAPID) group and promotes links between academics, clinicians and enterprise. ​
