Cornelius J. Clancy, M.D.

Dr. Clancy’s laboratories are interested in the molecular pathogenesis of invasive infections caused by the fungus Candida albicans.

Dr. Clancy’s labs have implicated several novel genes in both organisms that contribute to the pathogenesis of candidiasis and aspergillosis. Biological processes related to these genes that are studied in the lab include histone methylation and transcriptional regulation, DNA damage responses, and phosphoinositide regulation.
