About the Speaker
Chaitan Khosla (Professor in the Departments of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Stanford University, and founding Director of Stanford ChEM-H) received his PhD in 1990 at Caltech. After completing postdoctoral studies at the John Innes Centre in the UK, he joined Stanford University in 1992. His work on antibiotic biosynthetic mechanisms led to new methods for engineering enzyme assembly lines to make novel anti-infective agents. He and his collaborators have also studied the molecular basis of celiac disease, a widespread but overlooked autoimmune disorder. He has co-authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications and 75 issued U.S. patents, and is the recipient of several awards and honors including the Eli Lilly Award in Biological Chemistry and the Pure Chemistry Award from the American Chemical Society; the Allan P. Colburn Award and the Professional Progress Award from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers; and the Alan T. Waterman Award from the National Science Foundation. He is an elected member of the American Academy for Arts and Science and the National Academy of Engineering. Over the past two decades, he has helped start four biotechnology companies, and currently serves on the Board of Directors of Protagonist Therapeutics (PTGX). Chaitan is also the recipient of a Distinguished Alumnus Award from Caltech.
