Meet Our Faculty - Joris Beld, PhD
"My lab is interested in natural products. In other words, we're interested in molecules that we get from nature. If you go to a hospital and you look at the list of drugs they prescribe to patients, you'll find that roughly 75 percent of those are derived from natural products. Those drugs are not something that chemists have invented. They're made from molecules that we've borrowed from nature."

"For people who are thinking about applying to this program (MLAS), I would say it has provided nothing but great, life-changing opportunities for me, and I have only been able to further my experience and gain really valuable experience. For me, it's been a great choice and absolutely worth the hard work and dedication."
"I chose Drexel for a few reasons. A friend of mine graduated from the College of Medicine in 2014, and she always spoke so highly of Drexel. Her strong recommendation planted the seed. I also knew that I wanted to attend to an institution that I could grow with, and I wanted to be in a city that would allow me to thrive and find my passion within medicine, so Drexel ended up being the best fit for me."
