1pm Physiology seminar room
Amit is interested in how the cell surface is organised and specifically the role of the cytoskeleton and membrane lipids in receptor organisation and function. He uses advanced fluorescence microscopy techniques to monitor receptor spatiotemporal dynamics on the nanoscale. In a distinguished career that began in Biophysics before partially migrating into cell biology he has published over 100 peer reviewed articles. He is Associate Director of the CCMB – a premier Indian Institute focussing on cell and molecular biology.
