Bilal M. Qureshi

Postdoctoral Fellows


Bilal investigates fundamental processes of life at molecular level. He employs x-ray diffraction or single-particle cryo electron microscopy to obtain structures of biological macromolecules. Moreover, he investigates interactions of these molecules by biophysical and biochemical methods to understand the underlying molecular mechanisms for basic cellular processes such as signal-transduction, protein trafficking and enzyme regulation etc. Besides, he produces engineered biomolecules to further corroborate his findings. Being a biophysicist puts him in identity crisis at times: is he a physicist, biologist, chemist or even a computational scientist?
