Assistant Professor of Biological Science and Chemistry
Ph.D., Indian Institute of Science
Kalyan Chakrabarti has research interests in the interface between biology and chemistry. He held researcher positions in the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry (Göttingen, Germany), the National Cancer Institute (in the National Institute of Health, USA) and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in the Brandeis University, USA.
His work primarily focuses on protein dynamics and he is the coordinator of an international collaboration to develop a comprehensive framework for investigating protein dynamics involving the Max Planck Institutes in Göttingen and Potsdam, FreieUniversität, Berlin in Germany, and the University of Louisville, USA.
He obtained his B.Sc. Chemistry (Hons.) degree from the Presidency University, Kolkata. He went on to receive his master’s and doctorate degrees from the Indian Institute of Science, in biophysics with specialisation in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy of proteins. He has several contributions in the area of functional role of protein dynamics. In 2016, he along with an international collaboration published one of the most comprehensive examples of conformational selection in protein-protein interaction.
