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.
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.
