Although vaccinations have helped prevent the spread of such diseases as measles, polio, and smallpox, there is no vaccine for fungal infections. Two Rutgers researchers are working to change that.

In an interview with Rutgers University, Chaoyang Xue, a microbiologist and associate professor at Rutgers’ Public Health Research Institute, and Amariliz Rivera, a fungal immunologist and assistant professor at New Jersey Medical School, discuss their work to develop a vaccine to prevent deadly fungal infections.
