Postdoc at Chalmers University of Technology

With academic background in Chemistry, I have worked on exploring swelling properties of polyelectrolyte multilayers with ionic liquid solution during my PhD. Polyelectrolyte multilayers are self-assembled thin polymeric films of either synthetic or bio-polymers. The potential application of polyelectrolyte multilayers are spread from electrochemical systems to bio-sensor systems.
Being interested in self-assembly systems I started to work on reassembly virus like particles in my Postdoc. I have addressed the disassembly and reassembly kinetics of virus with surface sensitive techniques. Further I have developed simple method to release and inhibit virus binding by competitive protein.

Summary by Bethany Halford

I'm a science writer covering all kinds of chemistry at Chemical & Engineering News. If it's about a molecule or a molecule maker, I'm interested. Once upon a time I was a synthetic organic chemist, churning out new molecules. I used to tell people I was a sculptor on a very small scale. Now I sculpt stories.

Got a good chemistry news tip? You can reach me at b_halford@acs.org.

Chafiq Hamdouchi

Senior Research Advisor at Eli Lilly and Company


  • Department of Discovery Chemistry Research
    Indianapolis, Surrey, United Kingdom


Dr. Hamdouchi earned his bachelor’s degree and doctorate in organic chemistry from Louis Pasteur University, Strasbourg-France.
Following two postdoctoral fellowships, sponsored by the National Science Foundation-USA and Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia-Spain, he joined Eli Lilly and Company in 1995.
Throughout his 20 years of career at Lilly, he has contributed to a sustainable drug discovery portfolio from preclinical hypothesis to clinical proof-of-concept that spans the oncology, neuroscience and endocrinology therapeutic areas. He has led multidisciplinary (chemistry, pharmacology, ADMET, PK, medical) scientific teams in USA, Europe and Asia to deliver a number of compounds that achieved first human dose.
He is a co-inventor of six innovative molecules being pursued in clinical development for the treatment of Diabetes, Cancer and Neurodegenerative Diseases.
He has an extensive patent and publication record and deep experience in conducting drug discovery and development in Asia through effective partnership and mentorship.
