I am a 1st year graduate student in Chemical Engineering department, working on Prefoldin protein engineering project. γ-prefoldin is a newly discovered chaperone identified from deep-sea hyperthermophile Methanocaldococcus jannaschii, which can form filamentous structure that is stable under high temperature. Its modular structure, as well as heat-resistant nature, makes it a good candidate for self-assembling template for bioengineering purposes. Previously, our group identified ways to achieve control over 2D and 3D configurations of the filamentous structure. My research will focus on further applications of γ-prefoldin based nanostructures.
