Our guest scientist Prof. Dr. Harekrushna Sahoo, Welcome !!
Designation: Associate Professor
Institute: Department of Chemistry, National Institute of Technology Rourkela, Odisha (India)
Interested in digging out the folding pathways (specifically, the kinetic and thermodynamic parameters) of proteins in presence of micro-and macromolecular crowding as well as functional peptides using different spectroscopic methods.
To follow the conformation and dynamic behavior of proteins in crowding environment using different single molecule techniques like FRET and FCS to unleash at molecular level.
Research at HHU:
To understand the impact of polyethylene glycol on the distance distribution of CRABP I protein using FRET.
He's stay is funded by ICMR-DHR (Indian Council of Medical Research - Deprtment of Health Research) International fellowship program from India.
