Kaj Ulrik Linderstrøm-Lang (November 29, 1896 - May 25, 1959) was a Danish protein scientist, who was the director of the Carlsberg Laboratory from 1939 until his death.

His most notable scientific contributions were the development of sundry physical techniques to study protein structure and function (especially hydrogen-deuterium exchange), and his definitions of protein primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary structure.

Linderstrøm-Lang devoted himself unstintingly to protein science and trained a whole generation of eminent protein scientists, Linderstrøm-Lang maintained a fun atmosphere in his laboratory and a happy spirit that expressed itself in wonderful Christmas parties and frequent trips to the Tivoli amusement park in Copenhagen. Linderstrøm-Lang was also an excellent writer, musician and story-teller, and was active in the resistance movement against the Nazi occupation of Denmark.
