Biography

Subha R. Das's research interests include organic synthesis, nucleic acids chemistry, biochemistry, and nanotechnology. His work explores the design and construction of nanoscale DNA objects that have been inaccessible by traditional DNA nanotechnologies. He has synthesized backbone branched RNAs to provide a unique opportunity to investigate splicing and related processes such as debranching through biochemical assays and biophysical methods such as single-molecule spectroscopy. In collaboration with the Matyjaszewski lab, Das has pioneered access to DNA-polymer conjugates and hybrids for use in bionanotechnology applications. Recent projects include the on-demand functionalization of exosomes or cell derived nanoparticles towards targeted delivery of therapeutic payloads. Das also launched the Kitchen Chemistry Sessions, using food and molecular cuisine to teach the concepts of chemistry and science, while communicating and promoting science concepts to the public. Das is developing training and research modules for the Cloud Lab to make research more accessible and scalable beyond traditional models.
