The Fungal Infection Trust is a charity based in the UK and is the successor to the Fungal Research Trust, which was founded in 1991. The charity's aims are:
• to promote education about fungal diseases for example those caused by Candida, Cryptococcus and Aspergillus infections, and also the role of these fungi in allergies
• to support scientific research into these fungi and the illnesses associated with them
• to improve the diagnosis and treatment of fungal illnesses and to support the training of specialised scientists working in this specialised medical area (mycology).
The FIT set up and supports The Aspergillus Website (www.aspergillus.org.uk)
