Congratulations to Sanjay Hari, who defended his Ph.D. work “Investigating Inactive Conformations of Protein Kinases” on August 16. Sanjay was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH. He received his B.S. from Ohio State University in 2008 and entered the Biomolecular Structure and Design (now Biophysics, Structure, and Design) program at UW the same year. Sanjay has been a student in Professor Dustin Maly’s lab since 2009, where he has been studying protein kinase conformations. Sanjay will continue working in Professor Maly’s lab for the next few months while searching for a postdoctoral position.
