Invasive fungal infections present a serious global health threat. The research of Paschalis Vergidis, M.D., is focused on the epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment of candidiasis, aspergillosis and endemic mycoses.
Invasive diseases caused by fungi have a profound impact on human health and are associated with high mortality. These infections typically occur in individuals with impaired host defenses, but occasionally fungi can affect healthy individuals. Emergence of fungi resistant to antifungal agents presents a growing threat. Dr. Vergidis' research will lead to more accurate diagnoses and earlier institution of antifungal treatments, which are of paramount importance in improving patient outcomes.
