Research

Dr Boyce’s research focuses on how fungi recognize the host environment and transmit this information via signalling pathways to elucidate transcriptional changes and adaptation to the host. She is also interested in how the host environment triggers a morphological switch in some fungi from a multicellular growth form found in the external environmental (hyphae) to a pathogenic cell type (yeast) during infection. Recently, her research has focused on how fungal pathogens undergo microevolution in the host in order to adapt to the host environment and cause disease.
