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 that broadly employs inorganic chemistry to tackle global issues in health and energy.

The foundation of our research interest lies in exploring and exploiting biological metal catalysts, such as iron-sulfur clusters. We seek to understand how iron-sulfur clusters are formed in biology as well as to harness their capabilities in synthetic materials. Our lab is divided into two subgroups. The biochemistry subgroup is investigating the mechanism of iron-sulfur cluster formation in bacteria and exploring its viability as a drug target for new antibacterial agents. The biomimetic materials subgroup is synthesizing new porous materials containing iron-sulfur clusters for applications in energy.
