About Venki Ramakrishnan
Research in Ramakrishnan’s laboratory is aimed at understanding the molecular mechanism of protein synthesis. His lab was the first to determine atomic structures of the ribosome in different functional states and in complexes with several antibiotics. More recently, he has been using cryo-EM to visualise ribosomes in action in higher organisms. This work has yielded fundamental biological insights into how the genetic information is read to synthesise proteins from amino acids.
Venki received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on ribosomal structure and was knighted in 2012. In 2015, he was elected as President of the Royal Society.
