Soumya Mukherjee, PhD

Instructor in Neurology

Soumya Mukherjee is a research instructor in the Department of Neurology at Washington University in St. Louis. He obtained his PhD in chemistry from the University of Calcutta and specializes in proteomics and mass spectrometry. He joined the Bateman lab in 2022. His current research interests are in understanding the molecular mechanisms in neurodegeneration and the role protein post-translational modifications (PTMs) has to play during disease progression. Specifically he is interested in the 1) cross-talk of PTMs during disease staging, 2) protein aging and 3) altered proteoforms in neurodegenerative diseases. His goals are in translation of these findings using analytical techniques for the development of disease biomarkers.
