Lab Announcements

Jordan, Hannah, Sam

Congratulations to Harki group members that recently received awards! Jordan Baur (College of Pharmacy, Dean's Research Award), Hannah Skopec (Ole Gisvold Medicinal Chemistry Award), Sam Syberg (Summer UROP Fellowship) and Tommy Millunchick (Summer UROP Fellowship; not pictured).

New Harki Group Members

The Harki lab welcomes three new members: Katherine Jones (left; Chemistry graduate student), Samantha Kennelly (middle: Medicinal Chemistry graduate student) and Sam Syberg (right; Chemical Engineering undergraduate student). Welcome to the team!

Research Interests

Research in the Harki laboratory focuses on the design, synthesis and biological characterization of novel small molecules, peptides, and oligonucleotides that influence cellular function.

Applications for these molecules range from anticancer drug discovery to new tools for modern biotechnology research.

Our core science is organic chemistry. However, we use techniques of modern biochemistry, biophysics, and cellular/molecular biology to evaluate the biological activities of the compounds we synthesize.
