Areas of Interest

The O'Meara lab is interested in how organisms can sense and respond to the environment, with a particular focus on how fungal pathogens adapt to the stresses of a human host. More specifically, we want to understand how fungal pathogens are able to cause disease in humans. This includes asking questions about host-pathogen interactions and the evolution and selective pressures driving pathogenesis. We use functional genomics and genetic approaches to answer these questions.
