Stopping the Spread of a Superfungus in Intensive Care – Dr Katie Jeffery and Dr David Eyre
In 2017, the Intensive Care unit at Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital was hit by an outbreak of the potentially deadly fungal pathogen Candida auris.

Speaking at the Oxford BRC’s Open Day in May 2019, the Director of Infection Prevention and Control at OUH, Dr Katie Jeffery, and Dr David Eyre, of the Nuffield Department of Medicine and Big Data Institute, explained how the ‘superfungus’ was stopped in its tracks.
