Welcome to the website of Julea Butt's research group. Located in the School of Chemistry at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, we use a diverse array of tools including molecular biology, synthetic biology, optical spectroscopies, electrochemistry, mass spectrometry and protein engineering for our research. Our focus is the interface of chemistry and biology as we study metalloproteins to resolve their structures and function and inspire the development of biohybrid materials for light-driven production of electricity and fuels.
A post-doc position funded by the Leverhulme Trust is now available to join the group. The successful applicant will lead an exciting project aiming to introduce non-natural amino acids into multiheme cytochromes and enable enhanced biotechnology.
