Dr. Satyanarayana Lagishetty, currently working at the Eukaryotic Pathogen Innovative Center (EPIC), Genetics and Biochemistry Dept., Clemson University, Clemson, South Carolina. EPIC holds at the vanguard of biomedical research on eukaryotic pathogens, the causative agents of some of the most lethal and fatal diseases of humans including malaria, amoebic dysentery, sleeping sickness, Chagas disease, and fungal meningitis. Before joining Clemson University, he has lengthy track record of post-doctoral experience in the area of biomedical research at various Institutes and University’s. His first post-doctoral research experience was at the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Dept., MD Anderson Cancer Center, University of Texas, Houston, TX working on Breast cancer related proteins, the binding interaction studies of PRP-1 and NRF-1 protein. Later, he worked at the Biology Dept. and National Synchroton Light Source Dept., Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, NY on Protein Structure Initiative (National Institutes of General Medical Sciences) projects, Structural and functional characterizing various biomedical important proteins like Phosphofructokinases, Glyoxalases, ABC transpoter, Botulinium and other toxins etc. He also worked at the Department of Chemistry, University of Florida, Florida on project related to synthesizing novel drugs using different macromolecular scaffolds like Marinostatins and Microviridins, the smallest amino acid protease inhibitors.
He finished his PhD at one of India’s premier CSIR-institute, the National Chemical Laboratory, Pune, India with CSIR fellowship in Mar 2007 working on biochemistry and protein crystallography of macromolecules. He obtained his BS in Chemistry, Animal and Plant Sciences and Master in Microbiology from Osmania University, Hyderabad, India. He worked on projects “Isolation and characterization of stress inducible genes from pigeon pea” during his Master Degree.
