The Franz Lab: Bioinorganic Chemistry at Duke University


Information for 1st year graduate students:

Welcome to Duke! We are so excited that you are here!

The Franz Lab works at the intersection of biology and inorganic chemistry. Our research involves a diverse set of techniques including microbiology, analytical chemistry, organic synthesis, proteomics, peptide chemistry, microscopy, and spectroscopy. You can learn more about our projects by visiting the Research and Publications pages of our website.

We are planning to take new graduate students this year and we hope you consider rotating in our lab! When you start your rotation, we will reach out to you with details about how your rotation will work.

Whether you are officially rotating or not, we encourage you to reach out to Kathy or any of our current graduate students and postdocs to learn about research and life in the Franz Lab. You can find our individual contact information on the People page of our website. We stay connected with virtual group meetings, subgroup meetings, and lab bonding activities like group lunches. Please email any of us for meeting schedules and Zoom links.
