We are happy to announce the 16th European Conference on Fungal Genetics (ECFG16) that will take place in Innsbruck, Austria from March 5 – 8, 2023 .
22 June 2022
Univ.-Prof. Mag. Dr. Sigrid Neuhauser will give her inaugural lecture on June 24 th , 11:30 to 12:15, at the University of Innsbruck ( Hörsaal B, Technikerstraße 25).

Our research focuses on microbial interactions with a special emphasis on fungal mycoparasites. We investigate molecular details of gene regulation of the interaction partners and signal transduction processes involved in microbial communication and recognition processes. We further investigate fungal secondary metabolite production triggered by biotic and abiotic signals in efficient mycoparasitic biocontrol agents such as T. atroviride.
