Lipid Metabolism in Inflammation and Immunity

Research Description

Professor Hsu?s research program aims to integrate chemical biology and mass spectrometry-based technologies to address fundamental challenges associated with studying regulation of metabolism in vivo. His goal is to develop new chemical and bioanalytical methods to understand pathways of metabolic regulation and translate these findings into new therapeutic strategies for inflammatory and metabolic disease. To achieve his goals, Professor Hsu?s group synthesizes and applies small molecule probes and inhibitors to detect and inactivate metabolic enzymes and pathways in complex biological systems in vivo.
