The Charkoudian Lab

Organic Biological Chemistry at Haverford College

We study how nature makes molecules that play important roles in our lives (such as antibiotics, anti-cancer agents, and biofuels). Our work examines the evolution of biosynthetic gene clusters and explores how the encoded proteins collaborate to assemble structurally complex, bioactive molecules.

Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Our team is dedicated to creating and maintaining a diverse, inclusive, and accessible training environment within our laboratory, department, and the Haverford College Community. Our co-created commitment on diversity and inclusion can be found here.
