Dismukes Lab

G. Charles Dismukes is a Distinguished Professor at Rutgers University on the faculties of the Chemistry & Chemical Biology Department and the Waksman Institute of Microbiology. He is a member of the executive committee of the Institute for Advanced Materials and Device Nanotechnology (IAMDN), and the graduate training faculty in Microbiology and Biochemistry.
 
His research interests focus on biological and chemical methods for renewable solar-based fuel production, photosynthesis, metals in biological systems and tools for investigating these systems. His published works describe the biology and chemistry of oxygen production in natural photosynthetic systems, the synthesis and characterization of bio-inspired catalysts for renewable energy production, the use of microorganisms as cell factories for the production of bio-fuels from renewable sources. He is Principal Investigator of the BioSolarH2 team, a multi-institutional research center focusing on microbial hydrogen. We are pursuing two main goals that address both the fundamental science and practical applications of renewable energy production via I) bio-inspired catalysts for H2 + O2 production via water splitting, and II) sustainable biofuels and CO­2 conversion (hydrogen and liquid fuels).
