Pranam D. Chatterjee

Chatterjee

Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering

We develop diverse algorithmic modalities to discover, characterize, and engineer novel proteins for applications in genome editing, targeted protein modulation, and reproductive bioengineering.

Our long-term goals are two-fold:

  1. Enable the de novo design of protein effectors for any biological purpose
  2. Leverage our platform technologies to prolong and promote reproductive longevity and equality
