Fifty years of protein research: Personal experiences


M.R. Jisnuson Svasti

 
ABSTRACT:     The present article is a recollection of my career in science over the past 45 years, which has focused on protein science ever since my PhD study in Cambridge, UK. Upon return to Mahidol University, research initially focused on proteins involved in male reproduction and later turned to glycosidase enzymes in plants. This focus led to the establishment of the Centre for Excellence in Protein Structure, the first centre on protein research in Thailand. My interests included abnormalities in proteins giving rise to diseases such as genetic diseases and cancer, which is now the focus of the laboratory of biochemistry at the Chulabhorn Research Institute. In addition to research, I have always enjoyed working for scientific societies at national and international level, where I have served as President of the Federation of Asian and Oceanian Biochemists, President of the Science Society of Thailand, and founding President of the Protein Society of Thailand.
