Dr. Shivesh Kumar received his Ph.D. in the field of structural biology from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India. He did postdoctoral training at Purdue University, where he worked on KdpD-KdpE two-component system and deciphered the first crystal structure of full-length response regulator in complex with its cognate DNA. Currently, he is advancing his research experience at Duke University to understand the structure-function relation of macromolecular complexes using multiple biophysical and biochemical approaches. His research experience includes protein biochemistry, macromolecular X-ray crystallography, eukaryotic protein expression system using insect cells and mammalian cells.
Macromolecular structure and function, protein X-ray crystallography, protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions, to study protein assembly using cryo-EM technique. Cell signaling and cancer.
