Welcome to Dr. Raja’s Lab

Dr. Raja’s Lab

Research in our lab  revolves around several rapidly evolving fields of science: nanobiotechnology, bioanalytical chemistry,  protein biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology and spectroscopy. We synthesize gold nanoparticles capped with range of molecules like carbohydrates, dyes and  drugs using our green, single step patented technology for various biological applications. We are also interested in studying the structural interactions between angiogenic proteins like fibroblast growth factor-1 (FGF-1) and  interleukin-1 alpha (IL-1α) with various ligands using different biophysical techniques.
