Professor Pecoraro’s group has worked extensively to understand the role of metals in biological systems via a technique called de novo protein design, which attempts to build proteins “from scratch”. This  bottom-up approach aims to understand the properties of proteins from first principles.

Prof. Pecoraro’s group has also  discovered a new class of metal chelating agents that have been named metallacrowns based on the structural similarity of these materials to organic crown ethers.
