Dr. Chiung-Yu Hung received her Ph.D. degree from the University of Texas at Austin and then joined the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Medical College of Ohio in 1997. Dr. Hung has relocated to the University of Texas at San Antonio and she was promoted to an Associate Professor of Research in 2006. Her research is focused on studies of host-pathogen interaction and development of a vaccine against coccidioidomycosis, a human respiratory fungal infection also called Valley fever. An estimated 150 000 people in the southwestern United States infected with Coccidioides annually. It is considered to be a reemerging infectious disease. Currently, her research focuses on the creation of a subunit vaccine targeted to optimize CD4+ T-cell responses against coccidioidomycosis. She has published over 50 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters in the medical mycology field. She is also a coinventor of two US-patented vaccines against Coccidioides infection.

Research Interest

The major goal of this project is to evaluate experimental adjuvants for improving protective efficacy of vaccine candidates against Coccidioides infection. The deliverables are to produce a multivalent vaccine that are formulated with selected, experimental adjuvants and to evaluate the protective efficacy using a humanized murine model of coccidioidomycosis.
