Projects in the Woo group bridge chemistry and biology to reveal how small molecules influence proteins and human health.

 
 

Current projects:

Peering into the Cellular Black Box: We are developing new approaches that combine chemical biology and mass spectrometry to reveal how small molecules interact with the proteome.

From Form to Function: We are building new tools to probe and engineer cellular pathways that use small molecules, like glycans, to modify proteins during immunoactivation.

Gain of Function Natural Products: We are accessing new chemical scaffolds to evaluate the regulation of protein interactions by novel mechanisms.
