Dr. John Brannon Gary


Gary has been selected for a research and creative activity grant for his research titled "Bioinspired D Catalysis: Using Nature as an Inspiration for Developing New Chemistry."

Gary’s research seeks to develop new chemical models based on natural enzymes rather than the more expensive metals used in current practices to produce many commodity chemicals. These new systems could potentially impact areas such as alternative energy and the development of new drugs. Gary hopes to use this preliminary data to garner external funding in the future to continue to research using other types of experiments, such as water oxidation.
