Associate Editorial Board Member(s) cis_eic_Kadhirvel_001 Kadhirvel Saraboji Department of Bioinformatics School of Chemical & Biotechnology SASTRA Deemed University Thanjavur India

Dr. Saraboji received his Ph.D. in Crystallography and Biophysics from University of Madras, India, in 2006 and continued his postdoctoral research from Lund University, Sweden. Currently, he is working as Associate Professor in the School of Chemical and Biotechnology at SASTRA Deemed University, Thanjavur. Over a decade, he has been investigating protein structure, folding, and stability, using biophysics, structural biology, and bioinformatics approaches which have several biotechnological and therapeutic applications. His research is focusing on understanding the protein structure-function relationship, mechanisms associated with protein folding and misfolding, protein-ligand recondition and structure-based drug design. He has published several research articles, serving as a reviewer of many scientific journals and a life member of Indian Biophysical Society and Indian Crystallographic Association.

Editorial Board Member(s) cis_eic_Christian-Jelsch-ab_001 Jelsch Christian Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique Université de Lorraine Nancy France

Dr. Christian Jelsch is the director of research at CNRS, Lorraine University, Nancy, France. Initially, he was trained in structural biology. Later, he expanded his research in the area of charge density and ultra-high resolution crystallography methodologies, applied notably to macromolecular crystallography. He is the main developer of software MoPro and ELMAM2 databank dedicated to charge density refinement and modelling. He has developed the contact enrichment ratio within MoProViewer software for statistical analysis of intermolecular interactions and enables pinpoint driving forces in crystal packing formation. Current research interests include molecular docking rescoring and interaction energy studies.
