Misions

- Medical Mycology. Modeling of fungal infections in small rodents. Assay of new compounds with antifungal activity by in vitro and in vivo systems as well as to explore new therapeutical strategies. Development of histologic techniques for the diagnostic of fungal infections as well as evaluate the efficacy of experimental treatments in animal models. Studies on fungal virulence factors and their role in the establishment and development of fungal infections.

- Fungal biodiversity. Taxonomic study of known fungal species as well as description of new species (clinical and environmental) by classical and molecular tools.

- Environmental Microbiology. Studies of bacteria as bioindicators of water quality as well as their virulence factors and their incidence into the human populations.
