The purpose of his research is to explore the physical and chemical factors that are important in protein-lipid membrane interactions. The structure of proteins and membranes changes as a result of these interactions and this change affects their biological function. This type of research has potential to find applications in pharmacy and medicine. Presently, the focus of Dr. Jelokhani’s research is on pore-forming proteins embedded in mitochondrial membranes as well as the ways small antimicrobial proteins interact with microbial cell membranes. He is also teaching courses in biochemistry and biophysical chemistry.
