Research Summary

Dr. Jiang’s research focuses on the identification of novel bioactive small molecules and the manufacture process of chemical drugs and intermediates. Based on the structure of protein which has been proved to be the potential target for drug discovery, we make effort to design small molecules that act to the target. After evaluation and further optimization to the lead compound, some drug candidates are hoped to be discovered.
