Gouri S. Jas, Ph.D.
Dr. Gouri S. Jas is an associate professor of Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Biomedical studies at Baylor University. He received his Ph.D. in biophysical chemistry from the University of Kansas in 1997, his M.S. in physical inorganic chemistry from Eastern New Mexico University. He spent 1997–2002 as an intra mural research fellow at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland working in the field of ultra-fast protein folding. He spent 2002-2005 as an assistant research professor at the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, University of Kansas. Dr. Jas has authored many publications and has made numerous presentations at scientific meetings. His primary research interests focused on understanding the structure, dynamics, and function of bio-molecules and their complexes by using a laser temperature jump technique, time resolved fluorescence spectroscopy, fluorescence anisotropy, circular dichroism spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, infrared spectroscopy, dynamic light scattering, bio-informatics, and molecular dynamics simulations methods. More specifically, he is focused on understanding the protein evolution of homeodomain like superfamily, neuropeptide like superfamily, and interaction of nano-particles with cell receptor.
