Dr. Jose L. Lopez-Ribot is a Professor of Microbiology and the Margaret Batts Tobin Distinguished Chair at The University of Texas at San Antonio. For over three decades his research career has focused on the study of Candida and candidiasis, the main fungal infection affecting an increasing number of immune- and medically-compromised patients. Work in his laboratory encompasses from the basic biology of the cell wall, biofilm formation, adhesion and morphogenetic conversions, to the use of animal models to better understand virulence and host responses, to the more translational and clinical aspects such as antifungal drug development, drug resistance and vaccines; with the ultimate goal of devising new strategies for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of candidiasis.
