Amy Rosenzweig Professor

Research Summary:

The Rosenzweig group is focused on understanding metalloprotein function on the molecular level.  We use X-ray crystallographic, spectroscopic, biochemical, genetic, and bioinformatic approaches to attack problems at the forefront of bioinorganic chemistry. Areas of interest include biological methane oxidation, metal uptake and transport, and oxygen activation by metalloenzymes.
