Aashish Manglik, MD, PhD

Aashish Manglik is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Anesthesia at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Manglik is a physician-scientist and his laboratory seeks to understand how cells sense and respond to their external environment, studying the numerous proteins that lie at the cellular surface that enable individual cells to decipher the enormous number of stimuli that coordinate normal physiology. His lab uses a diverse array of techniques spanning biochemical and biophysical interrogation to protein engineering with the ultimate goal of using these insights to discover new approaches to precisely control cellular signaling.

Aashish has been named a Pew, Searle, Klingenstein, Mallinckrodt and Vallee Scholar and is a recipient of the NIH Director’s Early Independence Award and the Amgen Young Investigator Award.

Aashish received his bachelor’s degree in biology and chemistry from Washington University in St Louis and his MD and PhD degrees from Stanford University.
