During the fifth annual Stanford ChEM-H Postdoc Retreat, postdocs presented their human health-centered research and learned about transitioning to academic or industry careers.
Another year, another flu vaccine because so far scientists haven’t managed to make a vaccine that protects against all strains of flu. A new approach could end that ritual and protect against deadly pandemic flu.
Stanford ChEM-H Institute Scholar Laura Dassama tells us about life as an assistant professor, what it means to think like a chemist when studying human health and disease, and what drew her to Stanford.
Stanford ChEM-H is soliciting seed grant proposals from the Stanford community of postdoctoral researchers for exploratory projects that align with the Institute’s mission. Successful proposals will combine the complementary expertise of two or more postdoctoral researchers
Baker Family Co-Director of Stanford ChEM-H, Carolyn Bertozzi, has been recognized with the 2019 Gustavus John Esselen Award for Chemistry in the Public Interest for her work in manipulating the complex sugar coating on cell surfaces.

ChEM-H is partnering with the Stanford Center for Clinical Research (SCCR) to hire a Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC 2). The CRC will work with small teams of scientists and clinicians to support human subjects research funded by ChEM-H.
A team led by Carolyn Bertozzi, the Baker Family Co-Director of Stanford ChEM-H, developed a tool to help cut down and study mucins, stubborn structures on cell surfaces that help cancers evade detection.
A group led by ChEM-H Institute Scholar Lingyin Li and Chemistry/Biology Interface graduate student Jacqueline Carozza has found a molecule that could help undermine cancer's defenses.
Institute Scholar and assistant professor of pathology Jon Long talks about what brought him to ChEM-H, the collaborations he has built so far, and the "Wild West" of human metabolism.
A team led by Stanford ChEM-H Institute Scholar Stanley Qi have identified a potent tool for protecting cells from CRISPR-mediated gene editing.
Recipients of a 2017 "Postdocs at the Interface" seed grant from ChEM-H have published their work in Nature Biomedical Engineering.
Stanford ChEM-H is hiring new faculty whose research bridges chemistry, engineering and medicine to build a community of scientists who will drive the engineering of molecules, materials, and measurement tools that help understand humans and treat disease.
