The Australian Centre for Necrotrophic Fungal Pathogens (ACNFP) is an established research group based at Curtin University (Perth, Western Australia). Our aim is to undertake fundamental research into the mechanisms of pathogenicity and resistance in necrotrophic fungal pathosystems.
We are also developing methods to improve disease resistance in wheat and undertaking research to support the sustainability of fungicides for crop protection.
We are currently seeking applications for Honours, ISC and PhD studentships from home and foreign students.
