MRC Centre for Medical Mycology

Mycology is an area of urgent medical need, with more than 1.5 million deaths worldwide each year caused by fungal infections. 

Of all microbial pathogens of humans, fungi are the least well studied and understood. The cost of diagnosing and treating fungal infections also has major economic impact. The MRC Centre for Medical Mycology (MRC CMM) enables this group of researchers to utilise and expand its critical mass, promoting pioneering cross-disciplinary research that covers areas of scientific, translational and clinical importance.

The MRC CMM, recently relocated to the University of Exeter, is a joint investment by the MRC and the University of Exeter and represents one of the most ambitious strategic investments in medical mycology worldwide. The MRC CMM is based in the Geoffrey Pope building and spans both the College of Life and Environmental Sciences (CLES) and the College of Medicine and Health (CMH).

The MRC CMM complements and enhances Exeter’s existing strengths in living systems, life sciences and medicine, placing Exeter at the forefront of fungal research at a critical time.
