Mary Krishna Ekka

Scientist
Protein and Nucleic Acid Biophysics

Mary is interested in understanding the assembly, structure and regulatory mechanisms of macromolecular assemblies involved in biological networks. Her long-term research interest is to bring together different areas of research to better understand the molecular mechanisms of regulatory assemblies carried out at the interface of RNA and disease-related proteins to shed light on their functioning towards disease progression using molecular and structural means.
The research interests include:

  • Structural aspects of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA)
  • Studying regulatory mechanisms of nucleic acid-protein interactions

In order to achieve her goal, she will combine and correlate results obtained from an array of biophysical techniques including isothermal titration calorimetry, spectroscopy, surface Plasmon resonance, kinetics and other molecular biology tools.
