About Dr. Raja Banerjee

Dr. Raja Banerjee, an organic chemist, worked in the area of Structural Biology at Department of Biophysics, Bose Institute on design, synthesis and conformational analysis of short peptides using 2DNMR as the major tool for his PhD dissertation. During his postdoctoral research, he worked on designing short peptides to identify intermediates in helix-coil transition for understanding ‘protein folding’ in a novel perspective. Currently working on conformational switch of short designed peptide motifs, metal and anion binding small molecules used for therapeutic purpose and on design of biomimic – bioactive molecules involving construction of minimalist version of sequences with predefined structure. He is also using Mass Spectrometry as a technique for generating consensus in de novo sequencing of macromolecules. In 2008 was nominated for IASc-INSA-NASI Research Fellowship to work with Prof. P. Balaram at Molecular Biophysics Unit, Indian Institute of Scien
