Post Doctorate RA – General Neuroproteomics

Integrative Omics group recently had a Post Doctorate RA – General Neuroproteomics position become available. I’m seeking a promising post doc who might be interested in joining our team. Successful applicants will be immersed into application of proteomics to the research of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and associated pathologies affecting cognition.

Novel mechanism discovered for General Anesthetic Propofol

Dr. Mandira Dutta’s interview with Bio Patrika hosting “Vigyan Patrika”, a series of author interviews. Dr. Datta pursued her Ph.D. at the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science (IACS), Kolkata, India, under the supervision of Dr. Biman Jana. In her Ph.D., the primary focus was on the theoretical and computational investigation of molecular motor dynamics and their effects on different disease-related mutations. She obtained her Ph.D. degree in 2020, and currently, she is working as a postdoctoral research scholar in the group of Prof. Gregory A. Voth, Department of Chemistry at the University of Chicago, USA. Her present research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanism of viral dynamics, especially SARS-CoV-2 using molecular dynamics simulation approaches. Here, Mandira talks about her work titled “Mechanistic basis of propofol-induced disruption of kinesin processivity”, published as the first author in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, USA, 2021.

Bio Patrika interviews Dr. Kothiwal on his thoughts about “the role of cohesin complex in subtelomeric gene silencing and cell wall maintenance”

Dr. Deepash Kothiwal’s interview with Bio Patrika hosting “Vigyan Patrika”, a series of author interviews. Dr. Kothiwal completed his PhD with Prof. Shikha Laloraya at the Dept. of Biochemistry, Indian Institute of Science Bangalore, India. The main focus of his doctoral study was to investigate the role of cohesin in subtelomeric silencing and organization. Currently he is a postdoctoral research fellow in the lab of Dr. Stephen Buratowski at the Department of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Harvard Medical School, USA. His research interest include regulation of gene expression. Deepash published his PhD research findings as first author in two articles: “A SIR-independent role for cohesin in subtelomeric silencing and organization” published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (2019) and “Cohesin dysfunction results in cell wall defects in budding yeast” published in Genetics (2020).
