Henni-Karoliina Ropponen


Henni Ropponen graduated in summer 2018 from the University of Strathclyde, Scotland, with Masters in Chemistry with Drug Discovery. During her degree, she built a particular interest in antibiotic research while having worked with small molecule antibiotics at Roche and with biofilm inhibitors in her Master’s Thesis. Henni is continuing this in her PhD studies at HIPS with the focus on anti-infective target enzymes IspD/IspE by synthesising novel inhibitors and using computational, biophysical and analytical approaches alongside to support her research.
