The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) Board of Directors has appointed Dolonchapa Chakraborty, Ph.D., as co-chair of the Outreach Committee.


Dolonchapa Chakraborty, Ph.D., is currently a postdoctoral fellow at NYU Langone, where she is working on infectious disease with a focus on cell wall metabolism while identifying new targets for therapeutic attacks by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a common opportunistic human pathogen. Prior to this she studied food poisoning viruses during her doctorate studies at SUNY Buffalo. She was born and brought up in India where she had her first tryst with science studying COPD (a chronic lung disease). She believes in three things: First, viruses are (and will) take over the world; second, postdocs are superheroes without capes; third, living a great life is our first job. When her lab experiments give trouble, she turns to her kitchen. She is currently experimenting with vegan India-inspired desserts.
