Areas of Research

The specific fields of research are:

Proteomics: (1) Proteome/sub-proteome analysis of different samples (human plasma, human liver, mouse liver, mouse brain); (2) Mining potential biomarkers for diagnosis and treatment of life style-related diseases.

Drug discovery: (1) Characterization of diverse bioactive proteins/peptides, such as conotoxins and immunotoxins; (2) Production of proteins/peptides using molecular biology techniques for drug development.

Nano-biotechnology: (1) Synthesis of new biological nanomaterials; (2) Application of nanotechnology in proteomics, drug distribution and cell labeling
