Our research goal is to create innovative chemical tools, agents, and approaches for improving current targeted therapies for cancers and infectious diseases, including antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs). You can read on to find out more about these projects here.


Postdoc positions now available!

We are a research group with interdisciplinary skills and knowledge including organic chemistry, peptide synthesis, chemical biology, pharmacology, and evaluation using animal models. You can find our lab members here.
