Life shows its spectacular colours in its myriad diversity, yet life shares certain fundamental common elements like proteins, DNA etc. Students and researchers can build upon knowledge gained from observations in simple models to study even more complex problems. Our lab aims to study the individual and complex multi-protein (protein-protein, protein-non native protein etc.) , protein-ligand (protein-inhibitor, protein-DNA etc.) interactions by tackling the individual problems and assembling them to get a broader view.
Research in our laboratory focuses on the molecular level understanding of life processes. In particular, we work on Structural Molecular Biology to understand the fascinating microscopic world within us. We use Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Structural Biology and Bioinformatics approaches to understand the biology and chemistry within cell. We use mainly protein Crystallography and Single Particle CryoEM along with other biophysical techniques like DLS, MALS, ITC, Fluorescence Spectroscopy, SPR etc. to understand Structural Biology aspects macromolecules and macromolecular complexes of life.
Masters students with prior knowledge and/or experience in molecular biology, biochemistry, structural biology, computational biology, programming and/or bioinformatics are particularly encouraged to apply for a PhD position in our lab.
