Free & open to the public

Oregon Health & Science University Institute of Environmental Health Associate Professor, Pierre Moënne-Loccoz, will present on 'Mechanisitc studies of nitric oxide's reactions with heme and nonheme iron-containing proteins: Crossing the N's and dotting the O's with vibrational spectroscopies' at the Department of Chemistry's weekly seminar series

About Professor Moënne-Loccoz

Pierre Moënne-Loccoz received his Ph.D. from Pierre and Marie Curie University (Paris, France) in 1989.  He held a postdoctoral research position at the University of Oregon, Department of Chemistry, from 1990-92 followed by one-year with the University College London before returning to OHSU in 1994. His research interests revolve around the structure-function relationships with proteins - metalloenzymes and hemoproteins. Spectroscopic studies of enzymatic active sites, cofactors, and metal clusters; reaction intermediates within catalysis; nitric oxide in bioinorganic chemistry.
