EVENT DESCRIPTION  
 
Event Type:  Seminar (This is an NIH Science event)
 
Title:  Targeting Rhizopus virulence traits for novel therapeutic interventions of mucormycosis
 
Description:  Dr. Ibrahim research program aims at advancing our understanding of pathogenic mechanisms and virulence factors of fungal and bacterial pathogens, and at translating this knowledge into novel strategies to combat infection. His NIAID-funded program to study the role of iron uptake in the pathogenesis of mucormycosis, a devastating invasive fungal infection with mortality rates that exceed 80% despite antifungal therapy, has led to several seminal discoveries on the network of host endothelial and fungal molecular factors that promote fungal invasion, which can be successfully targeted to improve host survival (Ibrahim et al., JCI, 2007; Liu et al., JCI, 2010; Gebremariam et al., JCI, 2014; Gebremariam et al., JCI, 2016). Dr. Ibrahim has co-authored over 120 peer-reviewed research papers, book chapters and review articles, serves as a member of the Pathogenic Eukaryotes NIH Study Section, and has received numerous awards for his outstanding research work.
