WELCOME TO THE CENTER FOR INTEGRATED FUNGAL RESEARCH
The goal of the Center for Integrated Fungal Research (CIFR) is to integrate all aspects of fungal research including environmental and climate initiatives, disease, agriculture, evolution, mathematical modeling, genomics and bioinformatics, and to translate knowledge from fundamental research to stakeholders, the general public, and the scientific community. CIFR will promote education and understanding of the relative contribution of global biodiversity to the beneficial and deleterious activities of fungi.
Congratulations to Manuel Kleiner on achieving tenure! We wish you continued success!
