National Project


Deciphering the mechanisms of transcriptional regulation that control antifungal drug resistance in pathogenic yeast Candida glabrata: aiming at the development of improved diagnosis and therapeutic


Duration: from 2016 Mar 01 to 2019 Feb 28

Financed by: FCT

Prime Contractor: IST-ID (University) -Portugal

Results obtained within this project are expected to shed light into MDR regulation mechanisms in fungal pathogens and their clinical implications. The gathered knowledge is also expected to guide the delineation of strategies to surpass the widespread of multidrug resistance among fungal pathogens with implications in Human Health and Biotechnology.
