Welcome to the research website for Leah Witus, Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Macalester College.
We are doing research at the intersection of chemistry and biology focused on protein-mimetic materials.
If you are a Macalester student interested in getting involved in this research, please get in touch.
In 2020, during the pause in typical research activities, Leah started making science explainer videos for kids and adults. The series, called 'Preschool PhD' can be found on YouTube.
