Venkatraman "Venki" Ramakrishnan (Tamil: வெங்கட்ராமன் ராமகிருஷ்ணன்; born 1952 in Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu, India) is a structural biologist at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, England.[1] He shared the 2009 Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Thomas A. Steitz and Ada E. Yonath "for studies of the structure and function of the ribosome".[2] Venkatraman Ramakrishnan was born in Chidambaram in Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu, India.[3] He moved to Baroda (Vadodara) in Gujarat state at the age of three, where he had his schooling, except for spending 1960–61 in Adelaide, Australia. Following his Pre-Science at the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, he did his undergraduate studies in the same university on a National Science Talent Scholarship, graduating with a B.Sc. in Physics in 1971. In a January 2010 lecture at the Indian Institute of Science, he revealed that he failed to get a seat at any of the colleges of the Indian Institutes of Technology, and Christian Medical College, Vellore, Tamil Nadu.[4] Immediately after graduation he moved to the U.S.A., where he obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from Ohio University in 1976.[5][6] He then spent two years studying biology as a graduate student at the University of California, San Diego while making a transition from theoretical physics to biology.[7]
