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 that leverage the unique characteristics of glycans—sugars that decorate the surfaces of all cells—to deepen our understanding of cellular functioning and pathology. Chemistry, synthetic biology, and advanced imaging are central to the technologies we develop. Artwork by @natvelali.
