    Dr. Jane Symington is a pediatric physician scientist investigating the pathogenesis of Coccidioides, the fungus that causes Coccidioidomycosis, more commonly known as Valley Fever. Her current work focuses on dissecting the interactions between Coccidioides and innate immune cells to identify and target pathways important for fungal virulence or protective host responses.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
