Andrey Bobkov, Ph.D.
Andrey Bobkov's Research Focus
Dr. Andrey Bobkov scientific interests include
- Applications of biophysical methods to characterize protein structural and functional properties in vitro. In particular, protein folding and stability, self- and hetero- association, and mechanisms of protein interaction with ligands, small molecules and inhibitors.
- Protein synthesis, folding and post translational processing in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
- Implementation and development of protein purification and fractionation methods.
