The Ghiladi research group provides a dynamic interdisciplinary environment for graduate students and postdocs to increase their training at the chemistry/biology interface. Research efforts include i) identifying metalloprotein structure-function relationships in multifunctional hemoproteins including Dehaloperoxidase (DHP)  – the first identified multifunctional catalytic globin, and ii) the development of next-generation antimicrobial materials based on antimicrobial photodynamic inactivation and “pH-drop” strategies.
