Welcome to the Nair lab website!

Research in our lab is focused primarily on altering various aspects of microbial physiology with the aim of not only engineering them for applications but also to understand why various features of life evolved the way they did. This involves deconvoluting the complexity of their makeup and finding ways to alter their components (genes, proteins, metabolites, etc.) to achieve desired outcomes. As engineers, we believe that building a synthetic system (even if it’s a biological one) is one of the most powerful methods to understand the intricacies of that system.

Interested in joining our team?

We’re almost always looking for enthusiastic people to join us. Check the news page to see if we have any recent postings for openings. Prospective post-docs and undergraduates (preferably juniors or seniors) should contact Dr. Nair by email. Prospective graduate students should apply through the Tufts ChBE graduate program and also e-mail me if they have any research-specific questions.

Looking forward to the talk by Mattheos Koffas from ⁦@RPI_CBE⁩ on Monday. I purposely skipped his talk at #AIChEannual #aiche2018 so it wouldn’t a spoiler. https://t.co/2LyXnn6RXt
