Research Interest

1. Developing novel analytical methods for studying drug interactions

  • Develop and establish novel analytical methods based on MS, such as ESI-MSMALDI-MS and ICP-MS, to study the interaction between antitumor compounds and biological targets.
  • Develop and establish secondary ion mass spectrometric imaging method to study the cellular uptake, distribution and destination of anticancer drugs inside cells.

2. Development of new methods and a new system for in-situ liquid secondary ion mass spectrometry

  • Develop new methology of in situ and real-time liquid secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) by interfacing SIMS with a high vacuum compatible microfluidic device;
  • Application of in-situ liquid SIMS as an in-situ "molecular eye" to perform in-situ real-time analysis on various liquid surfaces or solid-liquid interfaces (electrode-electrolyte interface, heterogeneous catalytic reaction, bio-soft material interface such as cell membrane);
  • Develop a new instrumental system of in-situ liquid SIMS with high-quality mass resolution and expand its application.

3. Research and development of multi-targeted anticancer drugs

  • Design and synthesis multi-targeted metal complexes targeting both key signal transduction proteins and DNA;
  • In vitro and in vivo screening and evaluation of metal-based anti-tumour compounds;
  • The structure-activity study of metal-based anti-tumour compounds;
  • The pharmacological, toxicological, pharmacokinetic and metabolic studies of metal-based anti-tumour drugs;

4. Chemical biology study based on multi-functional molecular probes

  • Design and develop multi-functional small-molecular probes that can recognize both specific signal transduction proteins and DNA;
  • Study the interaction between the multi-functional molecular probes and the biological targets to explore the cellular signalling pathways and networks;
  • Study the interactions between the multi-functional molecular probes and receptors and their regulation to the signal transduction network to discover and pharmacologically valuable and clinically promising lead compounds.
  • Applying the multi-functional molecular probes to screen and identify biomarkers and drugable targets;
