Interested in doing a PhD in Structural Molecular Biology ?
We are constantly looking for motivated students to do PhD in the NSMB Laboratory. There are PhD positions available this August 2018 term. Get in touch with me by e-mail at “firstname.lastname@example.org” if you want to informally discuss about your research plans in our lab.
We have excellent facilities for doing Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Protein crystallography and Single Particle cryoEM:
We have an Art Robins Crystallisation robot for routine crystallisation screening; a Bruker MicroStar – In house Protein Crystallography machine for data collection.
We have cryo plunger both manual (home made) and automated vitrobot for cryo specimen preparation and a cryo 120 kv LaB6 TEM for standardising single particle cryoEM specimens. This machine is a wonderful machine for -ve stain single particle data collection.
We have good computational facility for crystallography data processing and structure determination and also CryoEM image processing and 3D reconstruction.
We at IISER TVM conducted ” The 1st Cryo Electron Microscopy and 3D Image Processing of Macromolecular Assemblies and Cellular Tomography (CEM3DIP)” Click here for lecture notes and lecture videos.
We are again conducting the “EMBO Pracitcal course CEM3DIP 2018” at IIT Delhi with Dr. Manidpa Banerjee and Dr. Vinothkumar Kutti Raghunath.
(for Principal Investigator (PI) or Head of the lab. only).
NSMB Lab is actively looking for collaboration with Biologists, especially cell biologists or physiologist or clinician who are interested in collaborating with us on molecular basis of Cardio Vascular Disease (CVD’s) and related pathophysiologies. Please contact me (click here) if you are a PI/Lab head and are interested to informally discuss with us about your research goal and our expertise complementarity for doing basic collaborative research, that will lead to considerable novel and new insights of biological functions and ultimately improve human health.
