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 to investigate 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 human DBNDD1 and CX05A proteins using NMR. In his PhD work, 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).
