Groves, Professor of Chemistry at Princeton,
John Groves, professor of chemistry at Princeton University, will lecture on “The Chemical Biology of Iron and Oxygen” at Mercer County Community College on Thursday, March 24. Free and open to the public, the lecture takes place at noon in the Communications Building, Room 110 on the West Windsor campus.
Professor Groves earned his Ph.D. from Columbia University. His lecture will discuss the current understanding of several aspects of the chemistry of iron in biology, with an emphasis on the oxygen activation and transfer reactions mediated by heme and non-heme iron proteins. The major thrust of his research program at Princeton is the interface of organic, inorganic, and biological chemistry.
The lecture is part
of the college’s Distinguished Lecture Series. For more information
