Lucía Fernández

Postdoctoral researcher, Instituto de Productos Lácteos de Asturias (IPLA-CSIC)

Dr. Lopez-Ribot is a Professor in the Department of Biology and the South Texas Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases, and the Margaret Batts Tobin distinguished chair at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). The research programme in his laboratory is focused on the study of Candida albicans and candidiasis, the main fungal infection affecting an increasing number of immune- and medically-compromised patients. The work encompasses from the basic biology of the cell wall, biofilm formation, adhesion and morphogenetic conversions, to the use of animal models to better understand virulence and host responses, to the more clinical aspects such as antifungals, drug resistance and vaccine development; with the ultimate goal of devising new strategies for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of candidiasis.
