Dr. Suresh Sharma earned his PhD from University of Mumbai in Life sciences working on diabetes and glycation of brush border membranes glycosidases. The research focused on looking at mechanism by which glycation (non-enzymatic) perturbs enzyme function.
“The thrill of making an impact on human health and well-being keeps me going.”
Dr. Sharma did his post-doctoral work at Case Western Reserve University where he investigated the role of peptidylglycinealpha amidating monooxygenase (PAM), an important enzyme involved in neuropeptide maturation during sleep apnea. He currently works at Pennsylvania State University in the Eberly College of Science where he conducts research on positive-strand RNA viruses and human mitochondrial transcription.
“I apply a variety of approaches to answer important questions in virology that ultimately give rise to new platforms for antiviral/vaccine development.”
His work showed that the specific protein in HCV, the non-structural protein 5A (NS5A) is an RNA binding protein. He is interested in further understanding how RNA viruses modulate and exploit mitochondria.
“Steadiness and constancy are critical for excellence, especially in research which is challenging. Science Advisory Board is an outstanding network of professionals from all over the world where one can look forward to getting valuable advice.”
Dr. Sharma is the leader of the Microscopy Team at The Science Advisory Board. In his spare time, he likes to read and do digital photography, yoga, and listen to music.
