    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Swidergall focuses on cellular and molecular factors that regulate the immune response against mucosal and invasive fungal infections. His goal is to develop a detailed mechanistic understanding of the molecular and cellular basis of innate and adaptive immunity against fungal pathogens with an aim to devise novel strategies to supplement the current antifungal drug treatment.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
