- A study titled "In vivo Hypoxia and a Fungal Alcohol Dehydrogenase Influence the Pathogenesis of Invasive Pulmonary Aspergillosis" was published in PLoS Pathogens (Grahl, N., Puttikamonkul, S., Macdonald, J.M., Gamcsik, M.P., Ngo, L.Y., Hohl, T.M., Cramer, R.A. 2011 In vivo Hypoxia and a Fungal Alcohol Dehydrogenase Influence the Pathogenesis of Invasive Pulmonary Aspergillosis. PLoS Pathog 7(7): e1002145.). As well, this article has been highlighted by the Faculty of 1000 Medicine.

- A study on the role of Trehalose-phosphate-phosphatase
in Aspergillus fumigatus virulence was recently published
in Molecular Microbiology (Puttikamonkul S., Willger
S.D., Grahl N., Perfect J.R., Movahed, N., Bothner,
B., Park, S., Paderu, P., Perlin, D.S., and Cramer,
R.A. 2010 Trehalose-6-Phosphate Phosphatase is
required for cell wall integrity and fungal virulence
but not trehalose biosynthesis in the human fungal
pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus. Molecular Microbiology,
77:891-911. PMID: 20545865) and highlighted by the
Faculty of 1000 Biology. This highlight places the
work in the Faculty of 1000's library in the top 2%
of published articles in biology and medicine. The
website also allows further discussion of the significance
and implications of the work at the Faculty
of 1000 Website.
