Research Interests

We are interested in multidisciplinary life sciences research. Our expectation is that the chemistry of biomolecules in living systems can define disease mechanisms. We would like to tell the biological story revealed by these molecules with advanced bioinformatics methodologies and modern analytical techniques. Our bioanalytical research exploits practical and efficient high-throughput technologies for the analyses of complex mixtures derived from living systems. The bioinformatics research in our group develops informatics system that enables mining of high-throughput data for molecular identification, quantification, molecular networks elucidation, and ‘systems level’ knowledge assembly.
