Redox Biology at the Edge

Welcome!

The Greene Lab is a collective of scientists interested in how biology performs reduction/oxidation (redox) reactions near or beyond the “breakdown” potential of water, the universal solvent of life. We use a variety of techniques and foster a diverse team to address these challenges with an eye towards sustainable energy storage, targeted therapies, and environmental stewardship.

Come visit us! We are located on the first floor of the Chemistry Building at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
