Sami Farhi, Ph.D.

Sami Farhi is a group leader in the Klarman Cell Observatory at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, where he leads the Optical Profiling Platform. The platform’s goal is to bring next-generation imaging approaches to bear on large-scale biological problems, with a focus on profiling the spatial organization of tissues, high-content optical screens, and all-optical studies of the electrical properties of cells.

Farhi joined the Broad Institute in July 2018 after completing his Ph.D. in chemical biology at Harvard University. He also holds a B.S. in chemical biology from the University of California, Berkeley.
