Content of research

Our research interests are focused on the interface between organic chemistry and molecular biology. Recent strong demands of small molecules drugs targeting RNA from pharmaceutical companies made our research field quite hot. Will you join our group to share the experience of big wave of new research?

Current Research Programs

  1. 1. Development of small molecule drugs targeting DNA and RNA
  2. 2. Chemical Biology study on repeat disorders
  3. 3. Regulation of RNA function by RNA binding ligands.
  4. 4. Development of new PCR method
