Welcome to the Laboratory of Mechanistic Glycobiology!

We are interested in glycan-binding proteins (GBPs) and glycoconjugates (glycoproteins and proteoglycans).

Major Projects

(1) Human lectin Galectin-3 and its interactions with glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans.

(2) Development of new methods to detect and purify glycan-binding proteins (GBPs) and glycoconjugates.

(3) Discovery of bioactive compounds from plants.

(4) Structure-activity relationship of GBPs and glycoconjugates.

Research in the lab is supported by National Science Foundation (https://www.nsf.gov/)

and Michigan Technological University (https://www.mtu.edu/).
