Prof. Ashutosh Kumar
Associate Professor, Department of Bioscience and Bioengineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Powai, Mumbai, India
His work involves studying the structure and mechanism of action of protein complexes such SCF complex and specialized Nucleosome and amyloids using state of the art solid- state and solution-state NMR spectroscopy along with other Biophysical tools. Ashutosh has made significant contribution in developing NMR methods and applying those on complex biological macromolecules to deduce structure and dynamics of these molecules. Prof. Kumar received his M.Sc. in chemistry from IIT. Delhi followed by his PhD at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai supervised by Prof. R. V. Hosur. He did his postdoctoral research work under the supervision of Prof. Marc Baldus, Prof. Adam Lange and Prof. C. Griesinger at MPI for Biophysical Chemistry Gottingen before coming back to IIT Bombay.
