Dr. Balaraman Kalyanaraman Publishes Memoir
Balaraman Kalyanaraman, PhD, professor (and former chair) of biophysics and the Harry R. & Angeline E. Quadracci Professor in Parkinson’s Research at MCW, had his memoir published in early June 2023.
In this memoir, titled Bombay to Brew City: Reflections of a Cheesehead from India, Dr. Kalyanaraman tells his story. He offers a smorgasbord of his views on growing up in India, coming to America, becoming a football fan (particularly the Alabama Crimson Tide and Green Bay Packers), working in biomedical research (including cancer and Parkinson’s and other neurological diseases), philosophy, race relations, exercise, and nutrition, as well as life lessons and keys to achieving one’s personal best. He shares—among other things—funny quips and insights learned along his professional journey to becoming a world-renowned researcher and expert on the fundamental biochemistry of free radicals, and he dedicates an entire chapter to his time at MCW. Please see the review by Bruce Campbell, MD, on goodreads.com.
Order Bombay to Brew City from Ten16 Press (hardcover or paperback).
Dr. Kalyanaraman plans to give some of the proceeds to children’s activities organized by Friends of Hoyt Park & Pool (e.g., Tosa Youth Tri).
The book will be available at the MCW Library.
