I am a postdoc in the Channel-Receptors Unit where I study the pentameric glycine-gated ion channel receptor and its modulation by the scaffolding protein Gephyrin. The aim is to understand the structural and biophysical aspects of this receptor-scaffold interaction.
I did my PhD from the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, New Delhi Component. There my work revolved around another class of membrane proteins called secretion systems. The focus was to decipher the mechanism of inhibition of the secretion system by some selective protein inhibitory factors.
