Rational De Novo Design of a Cu-Metalloenzymes for Superoxide Dismutation

Our latest paper on Superoxide dismutases (SODs) shows that rationally designed proteins with well-defined three-dimensional structures offer new opportunities for obtaining functional SOD mimics. Find it in Chemistry A European Journal!

Iodinated Metallacrowns: Toward Combined Bimodal Near-Infrared and X-ray Contrast Imaging Agents

Here is our latest paper on Metallacrown functionalization for the development of biomodal imaging agents. We show that our luminescent 12-MC-4 dimer structures can be synthetically modified to have 4, 8, or 12 iodines, resulting on a complex capable of X-ray attenuation and luminescence.
