Charles Craik, Ph.D.
Professor in the Departments of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Cellular & Molecular Pharmacology and Biochemistry & Biophysics at University of California at San Francisco

Profile

Charles Craik is a Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of California at San Francisco. He is the founder and former director of the Chemistry and Chemical Biology Graduate Program and is a co-director of the Molecular Oncology Program in the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. He received his education and training in Chemistry at Allegheny College (BS), Columbia University (Ph.D.) and UCSF (Postdoctoral). Since joining the UCSF faculty his research interests have focused on defining the roles and the mechanisms of enzymes, protein degradation machinery, receptors, membrane transporters and other challenging proteins in complex biological processes and on developing technologies to facilitate these studies. These studies coupled with his global substrate profiling, antibody engineering and noninvasive imaging efforts are providing a better understanding of both the chemical make-up and the biological importance of these critical proteins to aid in the rapid detection, monitoring and control of infectious disease, neurological disorders and cancer.  Craik is a council member of the American Association of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
