 Research Interests

Our lab has been focusing on developing novel MS-based proteomic methods to analyze dynamic changes of complex biological processes in a quantitative manner and made multiple contributions to the high-throughput, low-abundance, high-precision proteomics technology. We established one of the most efficient deep-coverage proteomics platform and the first one-stop proteomic data processing and integrated omics analysis cloud platform in the world, and invented transcription factor response elements on tip-mass spectrometry for quantitative measurement of endogenous transcription factors (TFs) DNA binding activity. We have a long-standing interest on a concept of “network analysis proteomics” based on signal transduction and transcriptional factors in intriguing biological processes such as organ development, cancer metastasis and aging. We are also developing the proteomics standard pipeline and applying the technologies in precision medicine and clinical research.
