My previous research focused on separation, synthesis, and characterization of novel bioactive limonoids and quinoline alkaloids from Dictamnus angustifolius. In order to yield significant activity, lower toxicity and higher bioavailability products, my ongoing research is mainly in studying stucture-activity relationships of some quinoline alkaloids with development potential through structural modification and activity screening. Pharmacokinetics and drug metabolism research of preferred active compounds are also involves in collaborating with other research institutions. In addition, my interests also include extending research in the molecular events leading to the activation and subsequent reaction of active compounds.
