Dr Hariharan Sivaraman is a Postdoctoral Scientist in the Structural Biology of Inflammation and Cancer Laboratory, within the Centre for Innate Immunity and Infectious Diseases and the Centre for Cancer Research.
Dr Sivaraman received his Master of Biomedical Engineering from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He then completed his PhD in 2019 at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, with Professor Daniela Rhodes, FRS. His study focussed on the structural biology of epigenetic modification of nucleosome core particles by BRCA1 and BRCA1 associated protein complex that are associated with breast cancer.
At the completion of his PhD, Dr Sivaraman joined Professor J Sivaraman’s laboratory at National University of Singapore as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, working on Dengue-related proteins. In 2021, he joined the Structural Biology of Inflammation and Cancer group led by Dr Wilson Wong as a Postdoctoral Scientist. He is training in cryo-EM to characterise the structure of protein-DNA, protein-RNA, and protein-protein complexes that are central to infections, inflammation, and cancer.
