Ishita Mukerji

Our research interests focus on the use of spectroscopic tools to investigate challenging problems in Biology by exploring the structure-function relationship of biomolecules. Current research areas include understanding the mechanisms of high affinity binding and recognition in protein-DNA interactions and the mechanisms of fiber and plaque formation in Alzheimer's disease.
