Fungi are everywhere, and a few species can cause very serious lethal infections. Fungal infections (mycoses) kill more people around the world than malaria. There are no vaccines to protect against fungal infections and we often diagnose them too late to save the patient.
The exhibit at the Manchester Science Festival spotlights UK research (some of which is supported by FIT) that will help to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment of mycoses.
