Dee Carter is an Associate Professor and head of the Discipline of Microbiology in the School of Molecular Bioscience, The University of Sydney, where she teaches mycology, medical microbiology and molecular biology. Her current research interests focus on using 'omics approaches to understand fungal pathogenesis and to develop novel antifungal agents. She loves fungi because they are so adaptable and clever, making them excellent pets but also devastating enemies. She is particularly fond of Saccharomyces because it fits into the former category, Cryptococcus because it fits into the latter, and Aspergillus because it manages to straddle both.
