Bio-inorganic chemistry

Course Description

Bioinorganic chemistry considers the roles of inorganic elements in biological processes. It applies fundamental principles of inorganic chemistry (particularly transition metal coordination chemistry and ligand field theory) to understanding the structure and function of metal ion sites in biomolecules. It also examines a variety of metal-related topics ranging from metal toxicity and the use of metal complexes as drugs to oxidative stress from reactive oxygen species and the bioregulatory functions of nitric oxide.  

Course Objective

The main objective of this course is to provide a detailed survey of bioinorganic chemistry through an extensive examination of current areas of research interest.
