During the past 33 years, John R. Perfect, MD, has established himself as one of the world’s leading molecular mycologists. He is an international expert on the potentially deadly pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans, which can damage the central nervous system. It is largely associated with immune suppression in HIV-infected people, but can affect the non-infected as well. It is responsible for more than 700,000 deaths worldwide each year.
