On 11 September 2018, Karoline Dukik, PhD in the Medical Mycology Research Group, successfully defended her thesis "A journey through onygenalean families Arthrodermataceae and Ajellomycetaceae" at the University of Amsterdam.

During her PhD, Karolina Dukik, a researcher in the Medical Mycology Research Group at the Westerdijk Institute, was working on the two medically important groups of fungi, the dermatophytes and dimorphic systemic fungi. The main focus of the research was the phylogeny of these fungi based on multilocus analysis. Additional work was done on developing new identification methods based on mass spectrometry LC-MS/MS method and the polyphasic approach and the antifungal susceptibility testing for the newly described dimorphic fungi. This research was done under the supervision of Sybren de Hoog.
