Helping to feed the world sustainably

How can we feed the world's skyrocketing population? There will be 9.5 billion people living in the world by 2050 - an increase of more than 2 billion over the next 30 years. Food production will need to double from current levels to meet this demand.

IFE Distinguished Visitor Lecture: RACI Sargeson Award 2019 - Associate Professor Elizabeth New

The inorganic chemistry of the cell is key to the processes essential for life. Almost half of all enzymes require a metal to function, while redox-active metals are key to the maintenance of redox homeostasis in cells. Medicinal inorganic chemistry, whether involving metal-containing pharmaceuticals or agents that perturb metal homeostasis, plays an important role in the treatment of disease, however much remains to be learnt about these agents' interaction with cells.
