Special Issue "Cryptococcus and Cryptococcosis 2.0"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2023 | Viewed by 13637
Despite important advances in the diagnosis and management of cryptococcosis, cases and deaths are measured in the tens to hundreds of thousands per year globally. Similarly, despite decades of study on cryptococcal biology and host–pathogen interaction, there are no vaccines, and around a fifth of the patients treated with gold standard therapies still die. This Special Issue of the Journal of Fungi will focus on research in Cryptococcus and cryptococcosis that could impact the health and lives of people suffering from the disease.
We will welcome manuscripts dealing with the basic biology of Cryptococcus spp., host–pathogen interaction, and the immune response to fungal infection. Clinical aspects, such as diagnosis and treatment, are also of interest, as are translational research and manuscripts describing the epidemiology and public health burden of the disease. The application of traditional and cutting-edge technologies for the development of new antifungal therapies will also be considered.
Prof. Dr. André Moraes Nicola
