    and his Ph D in Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford University School of Medicine Stanford California As a graduate student Dr Valdivia pioneered the use of fluorescent reporter proteins as probes for pathogen gene expression during host infection He and Dr Brendan Cormack developed green fluorescent protein mutants with enhanced fluorescent properties and applied flow cytometric techniques to identify bacterial genes that are specifically activated in infected cells This work led to the discovery of novel virulence factors in the enteric pathogen Salmonella typhimurium As a postdoctoral fellow at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute University of California Berkeley Dr Valdivia turned his focus to the genetic and biochemical analysis of protein sorting in the endosomal system of the model yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae His postdoctoral work led to the discovery of a previously unrecognized function of a yeast clathrin adaptor protein complex in sorting membrane proteins in the Golgi and later in uncovering a role for cell stress signaling pathways in regulating the transport of cell wall biosynthetic enzymes to the plasma membrane As an independent investigator Dr Valdivia merged his expertise in microbial pathogenesis and cell biology to study the cellular microbiology of obligate bacterial pathogens His laboratory has established

    extant phylum Chytridiomycota chytrides Current classifications assume that chytrids form an early diverging clade within the kingdom Fungi and imply a single loss of the spore flagellum leading to the diversification of terrestrial fungi Here the authors develop phylogenetic hypotheses for Fungi using data from six gene regions and nearly 200 species Their results indicate that there may have been at least four independent losses of the flagellum in the
