Composition and Methods Laboratory (FCMDL), part of the Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center of the US Department of Agriculture. His lab is tasked with the development of new analytical methods for nutrients and bioactive compounds in foods, dietary supplements, and botanical materials in support of nutrition research at USDA. Current projects in the lab include development of new methods for vitamins, metabolomics, and chemical fingerprinting of foods and botanical supplements. His personal research interest is the development of chemometric methods for the identification and authentication of botanical materials. Dr. Harnly received his BA from the University of Colorado and his PhD from the University of Maryland. He joined USDA as a research scientist in 1979 and became the Research Leader in 1997. He has served on the Board of Directors for AOAC International, the Advisory Board of the American Botanical Council, and numerous Expert Committees for US Pharmacopeia and AOAC. He served for 22 years as the US Editor for the Journal of Atomic Spectrometry for the Royal Society of Chemistry and is currently the Editor in Chief for the Journal of Food Composition and Analysis.
