Kaushik Sunder Rajan is a life science anthropologist whose research is focused on the global political economy of biomedicine, with a comparative focus on the United States and India. His first project studied genomics and post-genomic drug development marketplaces in these two countries, and was published as the book Biocapital: The Constitution of Post-Genomic Life by Duke University Press in 2006.

Sunder Rajan’s current research includes studies on global pharmaceutical clinical trials; changes in the pharmaceutical industry and access to medicines under World Trade Organization–mandated patent regimes; and capacity building for translational research, all with a focus on the United States and India. He has published articles in Science As Culture, American Anthropologist, and New Left Review. A volume he is editing, Lively Capital: Biotechnologies, Ethics, and Governance in Global Markets, is forthcoming from Duke University Press.
