Research Summary

Professor Tang’s research focuses on Design and synthesis of small molecules as probes of physiologically important cellular processes and as modulators of pathological conditions, with a focus on cardiovascular diseases and cancer. (Organic synthesis; Computer-aided drug design; Chemical biology).The current projects include: Design, synthesis and biological evaluation of pan-Raf/Ret multi-target inhibitors as antitumor drug. Professor Tang is the co-inventor of FN-1501, an anticancer agent in clinical trials.
