Research Overview

Our research applies chemical approaches and protein engineering to study and manipulate protein functions. We are interested in exploring the evolution of cofactors/substrates and their binding proteins, and generating artificial enzymes. We would like to apply synthetic biology tools for triggering cellular responses and studying metabolic pathways, and to explore challenging chemical transformations.

If you are interested in exciting research at the interface between biochemistry, molecular biology, organic chemistry and bioinformatics please contact us (
