Expertise and Research Interests

Biological mass spectrometry, metabolomics, chemical proteomics, drug screening

My research focuses on the developing and implementing an array of novel analytical strategies such as metabolomics and chemical proteomics tools to elucidate the direct targets of natural medicines, and gain new insights into the roles natural products play in the regulation of complex metabolic signaling networks. Emphasis has been placed on constructing a multi-faceted and integrated platform that include herbal chemicalome characterization, new strategy for untargeted and targeted analysis of metabolites, chemical proteomics and new bioinformatics tools to allow large-scale novel metabolite identification, etc. Recently, our group is also developing high throughput screening techniques for new drug targets from natural product pool. While significant effort has been directed to technique and method development, it is the biomedical importance of understanding the metabolic system that ultimately drives us our research to address challenging scientific questions.
