Headshot portrait of Pehr Harbury - Associate Professor of Biochemistry
Bio-X Affiliated Faculty

Dr. Harbury studies the physical underpinnings of protein function and the creation of novel small molecules through directed chemical evolution. His lab engineers proteins and small-molecule drugs at atomic resolution through a combination of structural calculations and combinatorial library synthesis. Their goal is to elucidate predictive principles by which novel shapes and catalytic properties can be conferred accurately on designed polypeptides.
