The Baltimore Fungal Biology Center (BFBC) was established  in January 2015 to  bring together diverse investigators in the Baltimore area with interests in fungal biology and clinical mycology.   Laboratories encompass three divisions at Johns Hopkins University: School of Medicine,  School of Public Health, and School of Arts and Sciences and two schools at University of Maryland, Baltimore: School of Medicine and School of Dentistry.

The diverse research of faculty covers a wide range of topics, including basic Saccharomyces cerevisiae biology, the molecular pathogenesis of Cryptococcus neoformans, Candida spp. and Asperguillus, and clinical cases of human fungal infections.

The mission of  BFBC is to promote excellence in mycology research by fostering collaborations, the sharing of ideas and reagents and by endorsing the next generation of fungal biology researchers.   The majority of current BFBC members are students and post docs, and BFBC strives to enhance their educational experiences through monthly BFBC research presentations, interactions with invited speakers and classroom education.
