Kamat, who will join Benjamin Cravatt’s group in the department of chemical physiology at Skaggs Institute for Chemical Biology at Scripps Research Institute, is the recipient of ACS’s 2012–14 Irving S. Sigal Postdoctoral Fellowship. Kamat will complete his doctoral studies this summer under the supervision of Frank M. Raushel in the department of chemistry at Texas A&M University.
