Delineating the structure and mechanism of the fungal high-affinity Fe-uptake system
 
This work has informed two significant questions in metallobiology: 1) How do multi-copper oxidases support the electron transfers they catalyze; and 2) How does an aerobic organism manage the complex aqueous and redox chemistry of iron so as to make it available for cell utilization. This work has been supported by an award from NIDDK since 2000, an award that has been acknowledged in 27 primary research papers and 10 review articles. Examples of these publications are:
