Research Interests:

We conduct multi-dimensional research that falls within the frame of proteomics and clinical application. Our goal is to develop new methods in proteomic technology to uncover answers pertaining to biological and biomedical questions that are difficult or impossible to be studied with use of traditional biochemical and molecular biology methods. Our proteomic methods are being successfully employed to decipher human diseases and biomarkers including cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
