Dr Nitika Mukhi

Postdoctoral Scientist Plant Health

Nitika is a structural Biologist and works on plant innate immunity to understand the molecular mechanism underpinning the plant’s responses towards pathogen attack.

In particular her work focuses on deciphering the molecular mechanism underlying immune activation by the paired TIR-NB-LRR resistance proteins- RRS1 and RPS4 from the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana using structural and biochemical techniques.
