M. Reza Ghadiri is an Iranian-American chemist who studies nanoscale science and technology.

Ghadiri holds a Ph.D. degree in chemistry (1987) from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He is currently a Professor of chemistry at The Scripps Research Institute.

The 1998 Feynman Prize was awarded to Ghadiri for groundbreaking work in constructing molecular structures through the use of self-organization, the same forces used to assemble the molecular machine systems found in nature.[1] His lab also pioneered the development of peptide self-replication.[2]
