Our research interests are primarily in the areas of synthetic chemistry and chemical biology. We are interested in using organic chemistry as chemical tools to study and address in biology. The foremost focus centers on the developing new biorthogonal chemical reactions and related fluorescence smart probes for selective labeling of biomolecules in cells to understand cellular processes. In the field of synthetic chemistry, our research aims to develop new synthetic methodologies for the efficient and economical synthesis of complex glycoconjugates of biomedical significance and carbohydrate-based small molecular inhibitors against infection diseases.
