Project Description and Objectives
The Fu lab was established in 2006 by professor Lei Fu, a famous scientist in the field of medicinal and organic chemistry. The research his group does interfaces chemistry and medicine, carrying out research on chemical synthesis and process development/optimization of drugs.
These projects are aimed at the Traditional Chinese herbal medicine according to the Chinese Yin-Yang and Five-Element theories to establish a process for the extraction of active ingredients of TCMs. A design will be made to validate a bioassay-based evaluation program, to articulate a TCM recipe/formula and to demonstrate medical applications in the following areas: free radical scavenging, anti-bacterial action, hyper sensitive skin and anti-inflammation.
This program will provide students the opportunity to learn the fundaments of drug development, identify the compounds in TCM by 1H NMR spectroscopy and HPLC-MS and to find the active ingredients in TCM.
