    • Computational aided drug discovery and Structural-based drug design;
    • Macromolecular drug development, such as antibody, DNA and RNA.

  4. CBI traineeship talk
    • As a CBI trainee, I was requested to give a talk to both chemistry and biology students
    • The talk topic: Hydrophobic gating in bundle-crossing ion channels: a case study of TRPV4”
