Research Areas
Research Interests in Natesh Structural Molercular Biology (NSMB) Lab :

Crystallography and CryoEM structural studies of complexes of signal transduction proteins in Cardiovascular Disease, proteins involved in Mycobacterium Tuberculosis.

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. Towards this we use two principle techniques viz., Protein Crystallography and Cryo Electron microscopy along with range of other biophysical and biochemical techniques.
