I am a postdoc working on membrane protein. Here I study the membrane bound pyrophosphatases from protist parasites causing diseases, such as plasmodium, trypanosoma, and leishmania, as a potential drug target. In collaboration with the groups in Pharmacy, we screen and design compounds and tested their activity against the protein. Then, for the promising compound, we do cocrystallization for structure determination with X-ray diffraction method to understand their inhibition mode.
