Research Areas:Design and developement of new drugs, Heterocyclic Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Chemistry
Lab Focus:This laboratory is focused on the new anticancer, antiviral, CNS and cardio- vascular drug discovery. The approaches are taken by either generating the hypothetic 3D structure through existing compounds through computer modeling program or directly using the X-Ray 3D structure of enzymatic protein, followed a virtually high through-put screening via docking through a variety of data bases to provide a new ead compound. Then the traditional approaches toward the lead optimization for new drug development are applied . On the basis of these approaches , current ongoing research projects include : design and synthesis of selective A1a-adrenoceptor and 5a-reductase inhibitor for the treatment of benign hypertrophy , design and synthesis of helicase inhibitors against hepatitis C, design and synthesis of adenosine A1 agonist for the treatment of arrhythmia,design and synthesis multi-drug resistance tumor reversing agents, and design and synthesis of tyrosine kinase inhibitors.
