Research Statement

As chemists, we are intensely interested in the field of nucleic acid, and value in-depth investigation of the subject and its challenges. 

We primarily focus on two topics.

G-quadruplex nucleic acid
Prebiotic chemistry

All projects typically require the involvement of synthetic organic chemistry, coordination chemistry, and nucleic acid chemistry.
