  • Global Health in our Backyard

    Current patterns of human migration should make us think about global health not as a phenomenon detached from everyday experience but as part of our new reality. The increasing number of immigrants from high health-risk countries living in developed nations create unaddressed complexity that calls for an evidence-based review of health policies.

  • What do we know about immigrant’s health status?

    We have a poor understanding of the prevalence of neglected infections of poverty (NPIs) carried by immigrants who enter the United States. This limited understanding compounds the health challenge facing immigrants who already have limited access to the health care services.

  • New Publication Focuses on Research Techniques in the Study of Fungal Molecular Biology

    Two faculty members in the department of Microbiology, Dr. Richard Calderone, Ph.D., and Dr. Ronald Cihlar, Ph.D., have contributed a new publication in the field of fungal molecular biology and pathogenesis, which delve into the various techniques used in this burgeoning field.

  • Richard A. Calderone

    “The focus of research in the Calderone laboratory is on the two most common fungal pathogens of immunocompromised patients, Candida albicans and Aspergillus fumigatus. We use molecular biological and biochemical approaches to identify new targets on these fungi that can be exploited in drug discovery.”

    “My laboratory is examining questions pertaining to the pathogenesis of Candida albicans, as well as performing studies aimed at antifungal drug discovery. In particular, we are investigating genes that may prove to be appropriate targets useful in the development of new antifungal agents. Work entails gene isolation/functional characterization and target validation through gene knockout studies. Additionally, we are studying the effects on nitric oxide- generating compounds, natural products, and designed chemical compounds on fungal growth and physiology.”
