Interests in Research

My research interests are focused upon two main areas: (1) to understand the molecular mechanism(s) of arsenite-, cigarette smoke extract- or methylglyoxal- induced DNA damages (oxidized DNA bases and DNA-protein crosslinks) and carbonylated proteins in mammalian cells and (2) to screen the Chinese herbal medicine with potential of anti-diabetes activity in an in vitro protein glycation system in order to confirm their possible molecular mechanism(s) that contribute to their antidiabetic actions.
