Bio Sketch/About
Dr. Pramod K Yadav is an Associate Professor & Ramalingaswami Fellow at the Department of Life Sciences and Biotechnology. Dr. Yadav has obtained his Ph.D. degree (Biotechnology) from the D.D.U. Gorakhpur University. He worked as Post-Doc (2009- 2010) in at TIFR, Mumbai. In 2010, he moved to USA to join Prof. Ruma Banerjee lab at the Department of Biological Chemistry, University of Michigan Medical School. In Prof. Banerjee’s lab over the years (2010 -2018), Dr. Yadav widened his expertise in current state of the art enzymology and protein biochemistry and he learned advanced protein crystallography and structural biology. He studied molecular, cellular & structural enzymology of multiple enzymes and membrane protein [i.e. cystathionine β-synthase (CBS) and cystathionine γ-lyase (CSE) and mercaptopyruvate sulfurtransferase (MST), sulfide quinone oxidoreductase (SQR) & cysteine aminotransferase (CAT)] associated with human hydrogen sulfide (H2S) metabolism & signaling pathway. In 2018, he joined Prof. Melanie Ohi lab at the Life Science Institute (LSI), University of Michigan with the goal of learning the technique of cryo-electron microscopy. At the LSI, he learned the single particle cryo-electron microscopy technique. Further, he solved 3D structures (Protein, Protein complexes, Virus-Antibody Complexes) using single-particle cryo-electron microscopy (CryoEM). Dr. Yadav is the recipient of several national and international prestigious fellowships including CSIR-SRF (2008), American Heart Association Postdoctoral Fellowship (2013) and DBT- Ramalingaswami Re-entry Fellowship (2020). He has published research papers in multiple high impact prestigious journals such as CELL, JACS, JBC, PNAS & Cell Chem Biol. During his research years at University of Michigan, he has successfully handled multiple projects and has mentored several undergraduates, Ph.D. students and new Post-Docs.
