Pedram Lab

Janelia Research Campus
Howard Hughes Medical Institute

The Pedram Lab is a chemical biology laboratory in the Molecular Tools & Imaging area of HHMI's Janelia Research Campus. We develop tools to explore extracellular biology, i.e. structures and events occurring in the spaces between cells of an organism. Chemistry, synthetic biology, and advanced imaging are central to the technologies we develop.  Artwork by @natvelali.
