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.

Andrey Bobkov's Bio

Andrey A. Bobkov, Director, Protein Production and Analysis, leads the Prebys Center effort on recombinant protein production and biophysical characterization. He has received an M.S. in Biochemistry from Moscow State University (Russia) and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the Bach Institute of Biochemistry of Russian Academy of Sciences. Andrey did his postdoctoral training at  UCLA Chemistry and Biochemistry Department. Andrey has more than 20 years of experience and over 40 publications in the field of Biophysical Analysis. He teaches the Protein Analysis and Biophysics portion of the Structural Biology in Cell Signaling and Drug Discovery Course to SBP graduate students.
