Kalyan Vinnakota


Summary

Dr. Vinnakota earned a PhD in Bioengineering in 2006, under Dr. Martin J. Kushmerick’s supervision, at the University of Washington. His dissertation was on computational modeling of muscle glycolysis and phosphoenergetics . This was followed by postdoctoral research with Dr. Dan Beard at the Medical College of Wisconsin in mitochondrial metabolism and diffusive transport in cells. During this time he developed a laboratory de novo for quantitative investigation of mitochondrial physiology and enzyme kinetics. Subsequently, he was appointed as a Research Assistant Professor of Molecular and Integrative Physiology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA, where he led projects on cardiac and skeletal muscle energy metabolism in the Physiological Systems Dynamics Lab.
Dr. Vinnakota is currently a research scientist at the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (HJF) in support of the Metabolic Networks group at the DoD Biotechnology HPC Software Applications Institute in Frederick, MD, USA. As a research scientist II, Dr. Vinnakota performs mainly independent research in focused problem areas addressing specific biomedical needs in military medicine.
