Cellular Inorganic Chemistry

Research Interests

He and his colleagues endeavored to bring the bioinorganic chemistry from molecular level to cell level, aiming at the cytochemical basis of biological effects of inorganic substances.  They integrate their studies with biomedical problems and explore the mechanisms of cell response to diverse inorganic species in relation to their pathological/pharmacological effects. Along with the accumulation of results, they developed several novel concepts and methods, which become the foundation of a new discipline---cellular bioinorganic chemistry. Currently, based on the metal-cell interactions, they extend their studies to drug discovery with intervention strategy on metal-involving pathological process.
