Clinical Interests

Research in the Hegde Laboratory is aimed at understanding the structural basis for specificity in macromolecular interactions. Currently the two main areas of interest in the laboratory are: proteins involved in early vertebrate development; proteins involved in the life- and infection-cycles of the cancer-associated papillomaviruses.

Research Interests

Molecular mechanisms underlying early stages in embryonic organ development; molecular basis of developmental defects and cancer; protein-DNA interactions; X-ray crystallography.
