Research Interests

Metalloenzymes are central to a wide range of biological and pathological processes, and are attractive targets for biological importance exploration and therapeutical intervention. There has a vast and largely untapped space for research targeting known and uncharacterized metalloenzymes, driving the needs of metalloenzyme-focused knowledges, resources, tools, and strategies. Our group’s research focuses on development of new computational tools, new data resources and new web servers to assist basic science and drug discovery research particularly targeting metalloenzymes, and development of new chemical probes and new hit/lead compounds or drug candidates to exploit metalloenzyme biological/pathological roles and therapeutical potentials.
