Bill Steinbach is a Professor of Pediatrics (Infectious Diseases) and Professor in Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at Duke University. His basic, translational, and clinical research are focused on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of invasive fungal infections. His laboratory (www.steinbachlab.org) centers on the molecular pathogenesis of the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus, targeting cell signaling pathways such as calcineurin and Hsp90 and their control over growth, disease, and antifungal resistance. Translational efforts focus on antifungal drug development, animal models, and phase I-IV clinical trials. He is the co-founder and co-chairman of the biennial Advances Against Aspergillosis meetings (www.AAA2016.org).
