About Thanat Chookajorn
Thanat, an alumnus of Mahidol University, completed his B.Sc. degree in Medical Sciences. He received his Ph.D. degree from Cornell University under the supervision of Professor June Nasrallah. He continued his research career as a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Professor Daniel Hartl at Harvard University. He enjoys working on single-celled eukaryotes because these organisms are highly adept at exploiting their limited tools to deal with a plethora of challenges. He is now leading a group of young (and somewhat young) scientists who share the same passion.
