Research Interests

The long-term goal of our research program is to contribute to biomedical science and technology through basic science research. Specifically, our research interests focus on the binding and mimicry of cell-surface molecules for bioanalytical, pharmaceutical and biomedical applications.

The main research interests in our groups are in the following three areas:

  1. Functional glyco-affinity ligand engineering: For proteomics and glycomics, pathogen and biomarker identification, and antimicrobial drug development applications.
  2. Cytomimetic antithrombotics: To explore vascular pathological and surgical interventional sites-local/targeted antithrombotics.
  3. Biological and cellular chemistry: To develop site-specific/chemo- and bio-orthogonal and live cell compatible approaches for biomolecules, biomaterials and cells modification and functionalization.
