We are currently recruiting keen volunteers and amateur scientists to complete air sampling for the citizen science phase of our project!
Global increases in infection caused by antifungal resistance fungi in humans and animals has raised concerns in the medical and mycological research communities and suggests a need to investigate exactly how widespread the plight of antifungal resistance is.
Help a united team of scientists from Latin America and other countries find antifungal resistant A. fumigatus!
The Latin American Medical Mycology Network (LAMMN), a network formed by research groups from 26 institutes and universities in Latin America have come together to investigate the prevalence of anitfungal resistance in a common pathogen of clinical fungal infections, Aspergillus fumigatus.
We are currently recruiting volunteers and avid amateur scientists to do simple air sampling of their local areas to help us identify A. fumigatus in their countries and regions!
