Assistant Professor Michael Rose is the recipient of the Ed Stiefel Young Investigator Award and corresponding named lecture presented at the Metals in Biology Gordon Research Conference (MIB-GRC). The MIB-GRC is the pre-eminent arena for high-profile research in bio-inorganic chemistry. The award honors the memory of Dr. Ed Stiefel, co-founder of the Inaugural Gordon Research Conference on Environmental Bioinorganic Chemistry.
During the conference, Rose presented "Functional Models of Mono-[Fe] Hydrogenase Using an Anthracene-Based Ligand Scaffold." More information about his synthetic modeling work can be read in his Nature Chemistry paper published on January 23, 2017.
