Expertise and Research Interests

Her research interests are focused on the synthesis of peptides and peptide-conjugates that have bioactivities, the studies related to posttranslational modification of proteins. Recent research interest also focus on the self-assembly of peptides and peptide-conjugates, inhibitors targeting the abnormal peptide aggregates. Recently, her group is also working in the development of glycopeptides vaccines for tumor therapy. As the principal investigator, she has published more than 100 peer-reviewed papers.
