Suhaib is a highly talented organic chemist and manager. He built and led the organic chemistry group at Helicos BioSciences. During the two years that he worked for me, he provided both leadership to his group and was the source of many innovative ideas that led to the synthesis of novel nucleotide analogs used in single molecule DNA sequencing. Suhaib would be an asset to any organization.
“Suhaib is an experienced manager and scientist who led the organic chemistry group at Helicos. He and his group were prolific in building a portfolio of molecules for our single-molecule team to screen and optimize.”
“I have worked with Suhaib for over 2 years in various capacities and enjoyed that experience. He is an excellent organic chemist with a tremendous knowledge of nucleotide and dye chemistry. He has very innovative ideas with respect to making molecules with biologically and chemically interesting properties. Suhaib has a great understanding of what will and will not work in a synthesis design and thus able to direct resources along the most fruitful path. He has been a critical member leading the team that has successfully met the very challenging requirements for single molecule DNA sequencing.”
“Subhaib provided leadership in the very complex task of designing sets of reversible dye terminator nucleotide analogs for single-molecule sequencing at Helicos. His expertise in organic synthesis was a crucial asset for this project.”
Suhaib is an extremely competant and innovative organic chemistry manager and scientist. His management of the organic synthesis group led to many novel compounds, some of which were successfully commercialized by our company. I enjoyed working with him and would do so again in the future.”
“We hired Suhaib in 2005 as Director of Chemistry. His role was to build and lead a six-person team charged with developing and manufacturing novel nucleotides for single molecule sequencing. Suhaib is a very effective professional, colleague and leader. He has my highest recommendation.”
