Franz Lab Interfaces Inorganic Chemistry and Cellular Biology while Outside of Metal Comfort Zones


Knowledge of metal-trafficking processes can be leveraged to develop small molecules that help cells regain metal homeostasis for optimal cellular function or conversely that push cells away from homeostasis and into cellular distress. A recently published Viewpoint from Lizzie Hunsaker highlights lessons and opportunities for research in an area rich for therapeutic development at the interface of inorganic chemistry and cellular biology.  Read more in the Inorganic Chemistry article available here
