Chemistry Center

In general,the chemistry center provides comprehensive chemical services including: bioactive small molecule synthesis, chemical purification and structure analysis, high-throughput screening (HTS) and lead compound optimization. The center is equipped with several advanced instruments: 400 MHz NMR, preparative LC-MS, UPLC-MS, GC-MS, IR, polarimeter, microwave reactor, and automated HTS facilities. We provide a highly effective and robust platform to conduct professional chemical services and help biological labs to solve challenging biomedical problems. Dr. Xiangbing Qi has been working on the discovery and development of novel small-molecules therapeutics for more than 10 years. The central theme of our research program focuses on the efficient synthesis of bioactive small molecules, High-throughput screening (HTS) for hits validation, hits to lead development, lead optimization as well as the subsequent biological evaluations of these molecules. Assisted by modern techniques such as computer modeling and chemical biology approaches, we collaborate dynamically with various laboratories to identify significant biological targets and facilitate biomedical research for biologically valuable small molecule discovery.
