FunHoMic is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network that integrates experts in fungal pathogenesis, immunology, microbial ecology and omics technologies to train 13 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs).

In their research projects, FunHoMic ESRs will tackle the interaction between pathogenic fungi, the host and the microbiota in order to identify novel biomarkers (fungal or host genetic polymorphisms, microbiota profiles, metabolites or immune markers) for the stratification of a patient’s risk of serious fungal infection.

This will pave the way for precision medicine in patient management through preventive or therapeutic interventions using antifungals, immune modulators or Live Biotherapeutic Products (LBPs).
