Neil Marsh, Ph.D.
Professor of Chemistry, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts and Professor of Biological Chemistry, Medical School


Neil Marsh is a Professor of Chemistry and Biological Chemistry.  He earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees at Cambridge University and was a post-doctoral fellow at the Johns Hopkins University.  He was a Royal Society University Research Fellow in Biochemistry at the University of Cambridge prior to moving to the University of Michigan.  His interests lie in the analysis of enzyme mechanisms, in particular metalloenzymes, and in protein structure, function and design.  His laboratory has two main research interests:  on understanding how enzymes generate and control reactive free radical species; the other on exploring how fluorinated amino acids can modify the biological activity of proteins and peptides.  In particular, his lab is studying how fluorination can be used to improve the potency antimicrobial peptides to combat antibiotic resistance.
