Research Focus: Structural basis of ribosome mediated Antibiotic resistance
Mentor: Matthieu Gagnon
Research Statement: I am studying the structural basis of Antibiotic resistance mechanisms in Pseudomonas that involves the translation machinery including a putative rescue factor of ribosomes. I am also investigating the structure-function relationship of some special features of translation initiation in Pseudomonas. Tools we use to address these questions are binding and functional assays along with X-ray crystallography or CryoEM for structure determination.
