The main foci of my lab are to reverse-engineer the ribosomes, and to uncover, discover novel functions of RNA.

We are interested in the RNA research: folding, assembly, and functions, using bioinformatics, biophysical chemistry, synthetic biochemistry, structural biology, molecular biology, and cell biology. We pay extraordinary attentions to the RNA association with metals, beyond group I and group II cations. In addition we use virus-like particle (VLP) to pack various sizes of RNA for cancer immunotherapy.
