Research Interests


Our group is interested in (i) Biophysical studies of protein folding and protein aggregation.(ii) Biophysical studies of receptor interaction with ligands (iii) Methodology development for rigorous analysis of experimental data. A variety of experimental techniques like multinuclear NMR spectroscopy, fluorescence, DSC, ITC, DLS and CD are being used to carry out these studies.
