Laboratory of Chemical Biology focuses on drug discovery, diagnostic technology development, and pathological understanding for Alzheimer's disease based on Chemical Biology. We integrate multidisciplinary approaches such as peptide engineering, molecular and cellular biochemical techniques, animal behavioral tests for learning and memory, brain imaging/tissue analysis, and clinical sample investigation to study Alzheimer's disease. Located at Yonsei University's International Campus in Songdo, Incheon, our laboratory benefits from a collaborative research infrastructure with strong industry-academic partnerships.
