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."

News and Announcements
The Campbell Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding HIV/AIDS research, has awarded a $75,000 grant to Dr. Irwin Chaiken and his team of researchers at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia who are looking to develop an effective delivery system targeting hidden reservoirs of the HIV virus. The researcher’s aim is to suppress HIV infection and its progression using specially designed molecules, which target the protein on the HIV surface that is needed for the virus to enter cells and start the infection cycle.
College of Medicine researchers are determining if an investigational treatment can clear the built-up plaque of the protein amyloid before the disease progresses and brain cells are impaired.
