Sachin Katti is a 6th year graduate student in the laboratory of Dr. Tatyana Igumenova. The overall theme of his work has been understanding the membrane interactions of conditional phospholipid-binding domains, specifically Ca2+ dependent C2 domains and diacylglycerol-sensing C1 domains. These modules are present on a large number of signaling proteins and mediate transient membrane localization in response to certain stimuli. As a result, they are of special interest as drug targets in the treatment of cancer and neurodegenerative disorders. So far, Sachin’s research has generated two first-authored publications, one of which made a cover on the journal Metallomics. Additional manuscripts are being prepared. He presented his research in two national and two regional level conferences in the form of platform talk and posters. Sachin also presented the research as talks in our department’s annual research competition for three consecutive years (2017, 2018: won 2nd prize, 2019). Upon finishing his Ph.D., Sachin would like to pursue a career in academia. Towards that, he will be working as a postdoc after he graduates.
