Dr. Chambers Hughes

Science Advisory Board Member

Dr. Hughes is currently an Assistant Professor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego.

He graduated with a B.S. in Biochemistry and a minor in Latin from Geneseo College and went on to complete a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley. There, he worked with Prof. Dirk Trauner on the chemical synthesis of two terrestrial and two marine natural products. Dr. Hughes was the first member of the then-nascent Trauner research group to earn a doctorate.

Dr. Hughes subsequently held an extended postdoctoral/research associate appointment with Prof. William Fenical at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego. During this time, he led efforts in the discovery, synthesis, and chemical biology of several marine-derived bacterial natural products. In 2012, Dr. Hughes was hired as assistant professor at Scripps. He continues to explore ocean sediments for bacteria that produce novel natural products and aims to understand how these metabolites function in complex cellular environments.
