The Kim group is a bioinorganic laboratory based in the Department of Chemistry at Brown University. Our research uses a multidisciplinary approach that draws from synthetic inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, spectroscopy, and toxicology. The development of fundamental inorganic chemistry allows us to address challenging biology and environmental problems. Please explore the website to learn more about our group and our exciting research!
