Winning medical students

The Aspergillus Trust held annual competitions for medical students to design information leaflets for patients. It was hoped that this would improve awareness of these illnesses amongst the medical profession as well as result in useful leaflets for patients. The leaflets are available for download here.

The Aspergillus Trust

The Aspergillus Trust merged with the Fungal Research Trust  in 2009, passing on over £10 000 of funds. The Fungal Research Trust (now the Fungal Infection Trust) pledged to enagage patients in helping with research and to provide information & support for patients at the time of the merger. At least one representative of the board of Trustee's has worked with the board on behalf of patient interests since that time.
