Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
He supported his research program at UAB over the years by securing grants from the NIH, NSF, American Heart Association, Arthritis Foundation, and the Leukemia Society of America. The graduate and postdoctoral students and NMR staff members trained in his research group over the years at UAB went on to establish highly successful careers of their own in academy and in industry.
At UAB, Professor N. Rama Krishna was a faculty member in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics. He had served as the Director of the UAB Cancer Center Nuclear Magnetic Resonance facility (NMR) Facility for over 32 years, and as the first Director of the Central Alabama High-Field NMR Facility that he established at UAB with Bruker NMR instruments ranging from 850 MHz to 500 MHz, before retiring as an Emeritus Professor in 2018. He received a number of awards and honors (including the election as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science), served as reviewer for several high-impact scientific journals, served as a grant reviewer for the National Science Foundation (NSF), and for private funding agencies for scientific research, and was a member of several Study Sections at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In addition, Professor Rama Krishna and his colleague Professor Lawrence Berliner edited 3 outstanding books on the significant advances in NMR techniques and methods for the “Biological Magnetic Resonance” series (Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers), viz, volumes 16 (Modern Techniques in Protein NMR), 17 (Structure Computation and Dynamics in Protein NMR), and 20 (Protein NMR for the Millennium).
