Greetings from Golden, Colorado, and welcome to the Morrison lab website!

We are an interdisciplinary research group in the Department of Chemistry at Colorado School of Mines broadly employing inorganic chemistry to tackle global issues in health, energy, and the environment.

The foundation of our research interest lies in understanding and exploiting biological metal catalysts, such as iron-sulfur clusters, for biological and industrial applications. We also have a core interest in the structure-function relationship of macromolecules, including proteins and synthetic frameworks. Our lab is divided into two subgroups. The drug discovery subgroup is investigating the bacterial iron-sulfur cluster machinery as a drug target for new antibiotics. The biomimetic materials subgroup is synthesizing new porous materials containing iron-sulfur clusters for applications in energy and the environment.
