Description of ResearchMy research focuses on identification of small molecules that modulate gas binding properties of human hemoglobin. Ongoing projects include (1) development of assays for high throughput screening of small molecules that modulate gas binding affinity of hemoglobin, (2) identification those small molecules from a compound library, (3) studies on how they modulate gas binding affinity of hemoglobin and (4) applications of gas binding modulators of hemoglobin for treating human disease. The projects are conducted in Warren Zapol's lab and collaborated with Broad Institute. We screened small molecules from a compound library using our developed assays and identified some small molecules altering oxygen binding affinity of hemoglobin. These molecules could be drugs for treating sickle cell disease and oxygenating hypoxic tissues.
