Devdoot S. Majumdar

I work in the Baltimore lab at Caltech. I used to work in the Weiss Lab at UCLA. I learned about OpenWetWare from the the Keating Lab at MIT .

I like single molecule biophysics, membrane proteins, and the process by which high affinity antibodies are generated, and protein design will always be the coolest thing ever. Go figure.

I like to Wikipedia Bird Strike. I have a generally unmaintained website.
