How do fungi achieve and maintain diversity?
We are interested in understanding how the molecular chaperone Hsp90, its co-chaperones and clients regulate genetic and phenotypic variation on evolutionary and ecological time scales. Variation is key to shaping development, virulence and stress responses in human pathogenic yeast species.
As part of Bath Ignite Dr Diezmann explains fungi and her research in five minutes. This talk inspired animation artist Tamara Webster to make a video about a scientist’s quest for a cure for fungal disease.
