Research

The rapid and global emergence of azole resistance in A. fumigatus has drawn attention. Thus, a thorough understanding of its mechanisms of drug resistance requires extensive exploration. Therefore, as a postdoctoral fellow, my research has provided a compelling a link between the identification of genes whose mutations lead to drug resistance, which can provide a complete understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying azole resistance. Previous studies demonstrated that the predominant mechanisms of resistance to azole observed in A. fumigatus are due to cyp51A mutations. Although, some unexplored non-cyp51A mutations that contribute to azole resistance in A. fumigatus has been investigated; unclear molecular mechanisms related to azole resistance require exploration. Reports of clinical isolates harboring different resistance mechanisms are currently limited, and studies involving large numbers of isolates are lacking.
