Research Summary

Professor HU’s research focuses on peptide drugs with anti-tumor and anti-inflammation activity. After design, syhthesis and screening of a peptide library, his group obtained peptidei nhibitors for matrix metalloproteinases. Lator on, by connection of a peptide inhibitor to an aniogenesis inhibiting peptide fragment, he designed peptide P2, which has been confirmed to have a high anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor activity. He is now interested in the basic mechanistic study of peptide drugs.
