Lab Announcements

There is an opening for a postdoctoral position in chemical biology in the group. Highly motivated applicants with the desire to work across the chemistry-biology interface are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate will have experience synthesizing small molecules and performing biochemical assays.

Jenna Thomforde joins the group for a research rotation. Welcome Jenna!

New Medicinal Chemistry graduate student Samantha Kennelly joins the group for a summer laboratory research rotation. Welcome Sam!

ayoubLab technician Alex Ayoub begins graduate studies at the University of Michigan with a summer rotation in the Mapp lab. Good luck Alex!

widenNew Ph.D. graduate John Widen begins postdoctoral studies with Professor Matthew Bogyo at Stanford University. Good luck John!

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.
