Special Issue "Fungal Pathogens and Human Health"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2021) | Viewed by 25552
As human activity, modern medicine, and climate change all intensify the impact of fungi on human health, it is imperative that we continue to expand our knowledge and understanding of pathogenic fungi. By investigating the ecological niches and epidemiology of emerging and emerged fungal pathogens we can better perceive acquisition and transmission by human patients. It is also crucial that we investigate novel diagnostics and analyses of clinical data for trends. Major examples of human pathogenic fungi include Aspergillus fumigatus, Cryptococcus neoformans, and gattii, Candida spp., and Coccidioides spp.
This Special Issue will highlight the impact of fungal pathogens on human health through comprehensive reviews, original studies, and perspective and opinion pieces.
