Dr. Chaoyang Xue’s laborattory published a research article titled “A mechanosensitive channel governs lipid flippase mediated echinocandin resistance in Cryptococcus neoformans.” in the ASM journal mBio, in which they uncovered a novel regulation of calcium homeostasis by lipid flippase function, providing a mechanism of lipid flippase mediated antifungal drug resistance. The paper is selected as the Editor’s pick of the issue, and can be accessed using the link: www.mbio.asm.org. In the same journal, Dr. Xue’s group, in collaboration with Dr. Amariliz Rivera lab at NJMS, published a second research article titled “A heat-killed Cryptococcus mutant strain induces host protection against multiple invasive mycoses in a murine vaccine model”.  In this study, they analyzed a potential vaccine candidate against cryptococcosis and other invasive fungal infections in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised hosts. The paper can be accessed using the  link: www.mbio.asm.org. For additional information on fungal vaccine development, please visit www.rutgers.edu for a recent interview by Drs. Xue and Rivera.


There is a postdoctoral opportunities at PHRI in in the laboratory of Dr. Hee-Sook Kim to study the Trypanosoma brucei genome and epigenome integrity. In addition, Faculty positions at the level of Assistant Professor are available.  For details, visit Open Positions.
