  • Research Interests

    My current research direction is chemical biology. I focus on (1) design new molecular structures and develop new synthetic methods for fluorescent functional molecules and materials, (2) develop analysis, imaging and artificial regulation for biological important targets and life processes for early diagnosis and treatment of diseases.


    My projects have been funded by National Natural Science Foundation of China, Ministry of Education of China, and Shenzhen Municipal Government. I also participated actively in some major projects funded by Ministry of Science and Technology of China, including 863 Program, 973 Program, and National Science and Technology Major Project.
