Dr. Fries' research focuses on Candida and Cryptococcus, collaborating between laboratories at Einstein and India under the AITRP program. Molecular epidemiology of Indian C. neoformans and Candida strains are contrasted with US strains, and data from Indian patients with Cryptococcosis are analyzed. Dr. Fries and collaborators have produced many publications, with future projects underway to yield similar promising results.
