Dr. Wozniak's Lab

Our lab is interested in studying the role of innate immune cells in protection against fungal infections, particularly their role in protection against the opportunistic fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans, which is the leading cause of fungal meningitis. Our current research focuses understanding the mechanisms of interaction between C. neoformans and dendritic cells (DCs) and macrophages, and understanding their role in the initial control of this infection.


For more information on Crypococcus and the disease it causes, please visit the CDC website.
