Bioinorganic redox catalysis for energy, environment, and human health

Inspired by Nature… Built by The Shafaat Group

Our metalloenzymes catalyze small molecule activation reactions, with applications ranging from alternative energy storage to biosynthesis to the origins of life.

Join us in our mission to understand “how enzymes work.”

The Shafaat Group research has been generously supported by the following agencies and sponsors.

The Shafaat Group is committed to diversity in all forms and recognizes that a diverse group performs better science, creates a more inclusive environment, and will improve the future of chemistry.

To Support and Increase Diversity, We Pledge to Pursue the Following Actionable Items

  • To be cognizant of who we are citing and from what journals
  • To attend lectures hosted by the OCDS and SACNAS organizations at UCLA
  • To be involved in programs that foster scientific inquiry among underrepresented populations at the K-12 levels
  • To use our voices to suggest diverse seminar speakers who reflect what the future composition of the field should look like 
  • To set aside a monthly Paper of the Week Pick to focus on research examining equity and social issues associated with STEM
