Microfluidic Approaches for High-Throughput Fungicide Screening and Sensitivity Testing

Project description

Look out, fungi – expedited rollout of exterminators is on its way

Although most fungi are not pathogenic to plants, the very few that are cause significant damage. Fungi destroy about a third of global food crops annually, not only affecting our food supply but also damaging economies and contributing to global poverty. The development of fungicides about a half a century ago was instrumental in fighting this threat, but fungicide resistance and highly aggressive strains are a growing problem. The EU-funded MAHT-FunSST project will bring fungicide development into the age of labs-on-a-chip with a novel high-throughput microfluidic screening platform that will help protect our global food supply already battling survival in the face of global climate change.
