Dr. Jayashree G.
Dr. Jayashree G. currently serves as Assistant Professor at the School of Biotechnology. She is interested in Protein Biochemistry and Biophysics.
She was awarded Ph. D. in Biochemistry from Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala, following which she joined Prof. A. Surolia’s lab at the Molecular Biophysics Unit, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore for her post doctoral studies. During the tenure, she was involved in the studies of lectins using Isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) and surface plasmon resonance (SPR). After the successful completion of the project, she joined Prof. Sandhya Visweswariah at MRDG, Indian Institute of Science. In Prof. Sandhya’s lab, her main focus was on exploring novel proteins involved in cAMP signaling pathway of Mycobacterium smegmatis. It is at this time she received Ad Futura Slovene Human Resources Development and Scholarship Fund award for 2010-2011 to visit the National Institute of Chemistry, Ljubljana, Slovenia where she worked in the Laboratory for Molecular Biology and Nanobiotechnology.
Prior to joining MRDG, she was a scientist at the SIBB R &D centre at Kalamasserry, Cochin.
