Research Areas

1.Structural and functional studies of biological macromolecules by X-ray crystallography, including novel approaches in protein crystallization

2.Rational design of drugs and vaccines by structure/function-based methods, particularly for cancer immune-therapy related molecules

3.Currently, my group also started to do single molecule biophysics and NGS (next generation sequencing) related technique developments, for understanding kinetic properties of above bio-macromolecules, particularly protein- DNA interactions

Research Progress

Su laboratory has been working in the fields of structural biology and molecular biophysics for the last 20 years, the main activities have been: Structural, functional and evolutionary studies of bio-macromolecules by X-ray crystallographic, biochemical and biophysical methods, particularly working on macromolecules related to innate immunity and cancer; Rational design of drugs by structure/function based methods; Utilizing and developing anomalous dispersion (SAD) methods for X-ray crystallography; Novel approaches in protein crystallization. Currently, Su group has also started to work on single molecule biophysics and NGS (next-generation sequencing) related technique developments, particularly cancer genomics.
