Bridging chemistry, engineering, biology, and medicine to improve human health
Sarafan ChEM-H is built for the future of research. Only by connecting chemists, engineers, biologists, and clinicians can we understand life at a molecular level and apply that knowledge to improving human health.
"ChEM-H is a hub of innovation that brings the power of diversity to improve human health: diversity of disciplines - life, physical and clinical sciences - and most importantly, diversity of people."
Baker Family Director of Sarafan ChEM-H, Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor in the School of Humanities and Sciences, and HHMI Investigator
The Knowledge Centers are shared resources that allow more labs to advance their research goals
Transforming human health
Faculty at Sarafan ChEM-H lead labs that tackle big problems in human health, like cancer, aging, and infectious disease
The next generation of scientific leaders need a new kind of scientific training
A launchpad for innovation
A Sarafan ChEM-H partnership with Stanford Medicine, the Stanford Innovative Medicines Accelerator (IMA) is accelerating the translation of Stanford’s research discoveries into new medicines while expanding knowledge of human biology. Through its faculty expertise and Knowledge Centers, Stanford ChEM-H serves as a core engine of the IMA’s efforts to catalyze discovery.
