Steven Metallo, Ph.D.

Dr. Steve Metallo is an Associate Professor of biochemistry in the Department of Chemistry. The research in his group is decidedly interdisciplinary, involving aspects of chemical biology, biophysical chemistry, and surface chemistry. The three specific areas in which we work are: small molecule binders of intrinsically disordered proteins, macromolecular crowding effects focused on nucleic acids and protein-nucleic acid interactions, and engineering of protein-surface interactions.
