It supports the Aspergillus Website which is the world’s most comprehensive, dynamic and interactive portal for all aspects of Aspergillus and the diseases it causes. This is also a huge resource for patients and carers, with support groups, newsletters and blogs.
In 2009 the first centre of excellence for fungal disease was opened in Manchester under the NHS — The National Aspergillosis Centre.
The Aspergillus Website continues to underpin the National Aspergillosis Centre supporting patients, providing meetings and consultations, encouraging international involvement from Scientists and Doctors worldwide.
The ongoing support for this resource is essential for continuing education and research in a quest to provide the best treatments for patients who are unfortunate enough to be affected by Aspergillus.
The FIT has supported 25 researchers and medical practioners resulting in more than 180 research reports on fungi and fungal diseases. Funding has also been donated to 4 major scientific conferences in the UK and Europe.
