About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Ramakrishnan, Venki
Location Medical Research Council
Primary Field Biochemistry
Secondary Field Biophysics and Computational Biology
 Election Citation
Ramakrishnan is known for his work on the determination of the three-dimensional structure of the small ribosomal subunit and its complexes with substrates and antibiotics, which has shed light on the mechanism that ensures the fidelity of protein synthesis, and for his work on the structures of chromatin-related proteins.
 Research Interests
I am interested in the structure and function of the translational machinery, which makes proteins in all cells using instructions encoded in the gene. This process involves the ribosome and its interaction with mRNA, tRNA and various protein factors.
