  • Environmental chemicobiology research group


    Environmental chemicobiology research group focuses on: 1) Carbohydrate-based molecular design and synthesis: towards drug development, as well as fluorescent sensors preparation applicable to environment and life sciences. 2) Fate and toxicity of PPCPs in chlorination disinfection. 3) Interaction mechanism of POPs and bio-molecules in terms of glucose and lipids metabolism, aiming to pollutants exposure and the epidemics of metabolic syndromes.
