FunHoMic: Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network

FunHoMic is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network that will train 13 Early Stage Researchers and decipher fungus-host-microbiota interplay to improve the management of fungal infections.

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).FunHoMic is coordinated by Christophe d’Enfert at Institut Pasteur and brings together 7 academic partners and 3 SMEs. FunHoMic has started on the 1st of January 2019 and will last 4 years. PhD positions are for three years, starting in 2019.

BIOASTER will integrate a PhD position about “Assessment of the secreted metabolome in Candida albicans“.
