Prof. Masoomeh Shams-Ghahfarokhi is working on identification and purification of antifungal agents from natural sources (including plants and organisms) and their molecular aspects. My team involved in evaluation of inhibitory effects of natural compounds on growth of pathogenic and toxigenic fungi at cellular and molecular levels. We investigate on Identification and purification of fungal growth antagonistic compounds and study on the mechanism of action of antifungal compounds by antifungal susceptibility testing (NCCLS methods and so on), electron microscopy, enzymes and protein production in fungi, toxin production and the expression of some major gene that involved on fungal pathogenesis.
