Christine Morrison

Assistant Professor, Chemistry

Research in the Morrison lab is highly interdisciplinary and is divided into two subgroups: drug discovery and biomimetic materials. Both subgroups share a core interest in the structural and functional versatility of iron-sulfur (FeS) clusters, which perform electron transfer and substrate reduction and 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 biomimetic materials subgroup is synthesizing new porous materials containing FeS clusters for energy-based applications.
