Research Area

Microbial Pharmacology. The main research area lies in Microbial Pharmacology. More than antibacterial and antitumor activities, we focus on the research of compounds with anti-TNF-α activity. We hope to find inhibitors that block the necrosis signaling pathway of TNF-α from microorganisms.
