Discovery, nitrogen metalloenzymology, and engineering in NOx Nation

NOx Nation is a research group in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Central Florida. Our research focuses on novel nitrogen biochemistries with significance to neurodegeneration, infectious diseases, discovery of human therapeutics in bacteria, development of green chemistries, and bioremediation of explosive soil contaminants. Our main mission is to train the next generation of scholars through the study of natural product biosynthesis, protein engineering, and mechanistic enzymology.
