Ayan Das

Project Associate I

Ayan did his M.Tech in Medical Biotechnology from IIT Hyderabad. As part of his M.Tech thesis, he developed a data analysis pipeline for the Single-Molecule Tracking of a cancer therapy target Aurora Kinase B in live yeast cells. Now he is working as a Project Associate I for the DBT funded project “Elucidating the role of chromatin remodeler in yeast meiosis, especially in meiotic recombination, chromosomal segregation and transcription of meiosis specific genes". Ayan did his B.Tech from Techno India University, West Bengal. He did several internships prior joining IIT Hyderabad. He was selected as an IAS (Indian Academy of Science) summer research fellow at THSTI, Faridabad (2018). He worked as a summer research student at CSIR-IICB (2019). He was a project student at IIT Indore (2020).
