Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy - Structural Biology

Santosh Kumar Upadhyay is an NMR structural biophysicist, interested NMR spectroscopy of protein-nucleic acid complexes.

The current areas of research include:
  • Interactions between protein and nucleic acid using solution Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR).
  • Biophysical (ITC, CD, Fluorescence etc) and biochemical methods for studying binding, structural and conformational changes and dynamics of proteins and nucleic acids.
