Postdoctoral Researcher | Physical Chemistry
Short Bio:

Dr. SK Imadul Islam will be responsible for using existing molecular modeling and simulation tools to engineer protein scaffolds, toward the goal of developing simple, protein-based metallo-catalysts that replicate early life enzymes.  Imadul will construct these molecules either by solid-phase peptide synthesis or recombinant expression and reconstitute with appropriate metal cofactors.  Imadul will characterize protein structure, metal binding and catalytic activity using established biophysical, spectroscopic and electrochemical tools – EPR, CD, voltammetry.

Imadul received his PhD in Chemistry from S.N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, India, in 2021
