Principal Scientist
Structural Biology

Bhupesh Taneja's lab is interested in understanding host-pathogen interactions through molecular structures of proteins from key pathways of pathogenic microorganisms.

His major interests are:

  • Structural insights into nucleotide modifying and regulatory proteins of M. tuberculosis.
  • Understanding the interaction of dermatophytes with skin through structural, molecular and cellular approaches.

We are investigating two distinct regulatory mechanisms for structural investigations in mycobacteria: nucleoid associated proteins and and their effect on DNA compaction and transcriptional regulation;RNA modifying enzymes and their mechanism of action.

The Dermatophytic Challenge : We have identified potential virulence factors of dermatophytes by comparative genomics analysis. We aim to make inroads into fungal disease dynamics through mechanistic understanding of these key cellular pathways.
