Who We Are
Seah Ling Kuan
My group is interested to develop new synthetic methodologies and prepare synthetic proteins to find new treatments for devastating diseases such as lung cancer and infectious diseases.
Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry
CSC Scholar, "Precision Protein Nanostructures by Chemical Design"
I would like to design and assemble different proteins in a defined and controlled fashion with chemical methodology in a site-selective manner to achieve multifaceted proteins with new functions.
"Supramolecular Fusion Toxins"
My project is to come up with chemical strategies to design precise therapeutic proteins for addressing biological problems. For example, to heal patients suffering from infectious diseases or after a trauma.
"Chemiluminescent Protein Hybrids for Biomedical Applications"
I work on creating chemiluminescent biohybrid materials for applications in photodynamic therapy.
"Protein Therapeutics for Oncotherapy by Chemical Design"
My project is to design smart therapeutic proteins to modulate microenvironment of sites of terminal diseases. For example, to find new treatments for patients with metastatic pancreatic or breast cancers.
"Smart Protein Conjugates via Dynamic Covalent Chemistry"
I am developing new strategies to prepare responsive protein conjugates via dynamic covalent chemistry.
