Dr. Baron Chanda awarded a 2015 Romnes Faculty Fellowship

Baron Chanda, was among nine UW faculty to be selected by the Graduate School Committee for a 2015 Romnes Faculty fellowship. Dr. Chanda is an associate professor of neuroscience and biomolecular chemistry; he studies mechanisms of gating and modulation of biological ion channels, and molecules involved in generating electrical activity in the brain and heart. His laboratory has developed sophisticated tools to study protein dynamics, and created a temperature-sensitive ion channel that rivals naturally occurring channels.
