Personal profile


My research work is principally focused on events central to human infection and immunity. Specifically, I work on structural & functional studies on proteins involved in human adaptive immunity such as Natural Killer-Cell receptors and Cytokines and its receptors. This has important implications for understanding the disease progression in human and provide hints towards its regulation. I am also expertise in DNA/RNA-Protein interactions and dissecting its functional importance with its physiological role. Specificaly in the regulaton of viral RNA replication and control of translation in human.
