The Brumaghim research group examines oxidative DNA damage and how antioxidants can prevent this damage.
Because metal ions such as iron and copper are a primary source of DNA-damaging radical species, we focus primarily
on the interactions of these metal ions with antioxidant molecules as well as the interactions between metals, antioxdants, and DNA. To determine mechanisms for DNA damage and antioxidant activity, we use a variety of chemical and
biochemical techniques and span the range of inorganic, organic, analytical, and biological chemistry.
We're looking for motivated people interested in interdisciplinary research, so check us out!
