Kalju Kahn
Dr. Kahn obtained his Diploma (Cum Laude) in Chemistry from the University of Tartu in 1992. He continued his research at the same institution in the laboratory of Professor Mati Karelson and received M.S. in Chemistry in 1994. After serving as a mentor for the 26th International Chemistry Olympiad, he joined the Ph.D. program at the University of Missouri-Columbia working with Dr. Peter Tipton on the mechanism of urate oxidase. He was awarded Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry in 1998. Dr. Kahn joined the research group of Professor Thomas C. Bruice in 1998.  His post-doctoral research focused on application of computational techniques to better understand enzyme catalysis. 

Dr. Kahn started his teaching career in 2001 by developing a series of lab courses for the new Biochemistry Major program at UCSB.  Over the past years he has taught a variety of lecture classes, including Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Drug Design, Enzyme Mechanisms, Chemical Kinetics, Biophysical Chemistry and Computational Chemistry as well as a series of biochemistry laboratory courses in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the UCSB.  Since 2012, Dr Kahn has been teaching a fully on-line Biochemistry Lecture course each Summer.  He is excited to teach a much more challenging Organic Chemistry course second time as a fully on-line course during Winter 2017!
