SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I am interested to pursue my research by using molecular biophysics in neurosciences, like X-RAY diffraction, NMR, fluorescence and protein structure determination and I am highly interested in working on molecular aspects of neuroscience. I would like to investigate the various protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions occuring at synapse and cell surface. And I would also like to investigate the molecular events occuring at pre- and post- synaptic terminals following the release of neurotransmitter and impulse conduction. I would also like to investigate various protein-protein interactions taking place within the cell.
