About the Song Lab

We are interested in discovery and development of novel small molecule inhibitors of biologically important proteins, targeting cancer and infectious diseases. These compounds will be used as chemical probes to find new cancer biology (Chemical Biology), or further developed to become clinically useful drugs (Drug Discovery). These goals will be achieved by using a combination of rational, computational drug design, synthetic chemistry, protein x-ray crystallography, high-throughput screening, biological activity testing, and molecular & cell biology.
