Accepting new graduate students


Post-doctoral Scholar, Chemical Biology, The Rockefeller University, 2010
Ph.D., Chemistry, University of Illinois, 2005

Champak Chatterjee obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry (focus on Chemical Biology) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and he invented disulfide-directed protein ubiquitylation as a postdoctoral researcher at The Rockefeller University in New York City. The Chatterjee lab in Seattle is developing atom-efficient and water-compatible organic synthetic methodologies for protein chemistry. These new organic and molecular biological methods are applied to understand human gene regulation by reversible post-translational modifications. New trainees in the Chatterjee lab can expect to master techniques in small-molecule, peptide and protein synthesis, bioanalytical and biophysical measurements, molecular biology and mammalian cell culture. Former trainees from the Chatterjee labs have gone onto assistant professorships (Keystone College, PA), startups (Revolution Medicines, CA), postdoctoral research (Harvard Medical School and The Rockefeller University) and lectureships (Baylor University and UW Bothell). The Chatterjee lab is a firm believer in mens sana in corpore sano and hiking is the most popular group activity.
