HH (Hylke) Kortenbosch MScPhD candidate
Follow me on:
The main focus of my research is the emergence, spread, and persistence of resistance against antifungals (azoles) in the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus in the environment. This resistance is both a growing medical and environmental issue, making it a typical example of a One-Health topic. To study this topic I use a combination of fieldwork and lab experiments. For more information regarding the overarching project that my work is a part of, go to https://www.wur.nl/en/project/One-health-consequences-of-circularity.htm
Information for students: I have multiple BSc and MSc projects available within my research and I am always willing to think along with you if you are interested in doing a thesis on environmental azole resistance in Aspergillus fumigatus. You can find a summary of some of my thesis ideas, along with many others from the genetics chair group at Genetics Thesis & Internships on Brightspace.
