Kingsley Benjamin Obika

Kingsley Benjamin Obika studied at the Martin Luther University, Halle-Wittenberg where he obtained his bachelor and master degrees in biochemistry. In his bachelor thesis he employed NMR techniques in investigating the cis/trans isomerization of prolyl-peptide bonds and the significance of proline in the energetic favorability of cis isomers. During his master thesis, he characterized the intrinsic disorder propensity of candidate proteins human-DBNDD1 and -CX05A using NMR methodologies. Currently, his focus is set on investigating the interactions and mechanisms of action between RAVER1 and its binding partners with emphasis on the implications of its intrinsically disordered regions (IDRs).
