Frightened by fungal zombies in The Last of Us?
MoGen professor Dr. Leah Cowen shares her expertise on fungal pathogens in a recent CBC report. In the article, Cowen is quoted saying "People most often think about fungi as foot infections, or something kind of trivial, as opposed to a deadly disease. But what we have seen is — now that people are actually paying attention — fungi are killing more than 1.5 million people every year."
