Welcome to Life

Awareness. Education. Saving Lives.

Over 300 million people are acutely or chronically infected by fungi, leading to death, long term illness, blindness, psychological problems and reduced work capacity. Many recent improvements in diagnostics and treatment have not reached treating clinicians in all countries, and access to appropriate diagnostics and simple antifungal agents is far from universal. This needs to change.

LIFE aims to provide the latest information on the most common human pathological fungi, the diseases they cause and their diagnostics and treatment. LIFE is led by Professor David Denning who has been caring for patients with fungal infection for 30 years.
