Caption: Spotting fungal infections can be hard and treating serious cases can be difficult. Thanks to the work of Chad Rappleye, Ph.D., of the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, that could someday change. Rappleye has discovered a way to mark fungal infections so they turn bright red when active. His discovery could lead to a badly needed new class of drugs to fight fungal infections.
