Research interests


Our long-term research vision is to promote the revolution of proteomics from 1D to 4D, in order to describe each protein’s life trajectory in living cells. My lab will be focused on developing novel chemical and molecular tools, in combination with state-of-the-art proteomics, to simultaneously map dynamic timing, localization, function and interaction of proteomes, with the ultimate goal of better understanding essential mechanisms underlying the regulation of cellular physiology. Specifically, I have three major future directions to address different aspects of essential biological questions and lay the foundation for the eventual 4D proteomics.


1. Novel methods for spatiotemporally-resolved profiling of dynamic protein events, including protein trafficking, turnover and structural changes.


2. Novel methods for spatiotemporally-resolved profiling of molecular interactions.


3. Discovery of functional protein PTMs in host-pathogen interface.
