Active Research Projects

Cancer Biology

In our Cancer Biology projects, we seek to understand how different types of cancer cells and immune cells control tumor survival, and  what therapeutic strategies can be used to target various cancers. We are exploring the role of ferroptosis in several  cancers, such as brain and liver cancers, examining the mechanism of drug resistance, and using single-cell methods to characterize the heterogeneity and the microenvironment in solid tumors. 

Chemical Biology

We use diverse chemical and biological tools to elucidate new mechanisms related to cell death, metabolism, and disease. For example, we design small molecule inhibitors and activators of proteins using high resolution structural information and computational chemistry tools. We also create imaging probes to determine where different biomolecules are located in cells and tissues.
