Muthumari Subramanian

Dr. Muthumari Subramanian obtained his PhD degree in the field of organometallic chemistry and catalysis at the Bharathidasan University, Tamilnadu, India. He received his post-doctoral training in the field of homogeneous catalysts and biomedical applications at the Department of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Bombay, Mumbai, India. Later, he joined as a post-doctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Andrey Bobko, Department of Biochemistry, West Virginia University, Morgantown, USA.

The sphere of interest:  

His current research is focused on the synthesis and characterization of multifunctional paramagnetic probes for the measurements of physiologically important analytes such as pH, pO2, inorganic phosphate, glucose, and glutathione, in in vivo systems.
