Biochemistry Literacy

Daniel Fried, Ph.D.

This remarkable video shows that even very young students can understand, draw, and build biopolymers with my curriculum. There are two more funny videos on the YouTube channel with this student.
Professor Daniel Fried is a native of upstate New York and has a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Yale University. As the child of two third grade teachers, Dr. Fried, has had an interest in education from an early age. Dr. Fried began developing Biochemistry Literacy for Kids while in graduate school, as a way to introduce very high-level chemistry to kids of any age. Dr. Fried is now a tenured professor at Saint Peter’s University in Jersey City, where he teaches a variety of Chemistry courses including Medicinal Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Organic Chemistry. He has run hundreds of classes for kids and has published academic articles on how college-level chemistry can be mastered by even elementary-aged kids. His Biochemistry Literacy program is now used by hundreds of public, private, and home school students around the world. Dr. Fried currently lives in New Jersey with his wife, also a chemistry professor, and three year old son.
