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.
