Periodic Table

Research in the Dey laboratory resides at the interface of chemistry and biology to understand the molecular mechanisms of metalloenzymes important for bioenergy conversion, human health and disease, or environmentally valuable. The focus is on applying a combination of enzymology, microbiology, molecular biology, and X-ray crystallographic technique to investigate the catalytic mechanisms of redox-active metalloenzymes. The research is highly interdisciplinary, drawing from synthetic chemistry, protein biochemistry, biophysics, and microbial bioprocessing.
