Christine Morrison

Assistant Professor, Chemistry

The Morrison lab will launch in Summer 2019 with research areas in drug discovery and biomimetic materials. Research in the Morrison lab is highly interdisciplinary and features a core interest in the structural and functional versatility of iron-sulfur (FeS) clusters, which are involved in many key biological processes. The drug discovery subgroup is investigating the bacterial FeS cluster machinery as a drug target for the development of new antibiotics. The materials subgroup is synthesizing new porous materials containing FeS clusters for energy-based applications. Please visit the Morrison Research website for more information about the lab.

 

Students interested in laboratory research involving drug discovery, biochemistry, chemical biology, materials, and/or inorganic chemistry are encouraged to contact Prof. Morrison.
