We have research experience in the isolation, identification, structure elucidation, analysis, synthesis and biological evaluation of natural products and other small molecules. Many of these compounds showed biological activities against cancer, tuberculosis, malaria and viruses, and some of them have been evaluated in in vivo studies. Our current research interest is focused on natural products drug discovery from natural resources, as well as the development of botanical dietary supplements from herbal medicines. Specifically, Dr. Zhang is interested in finding natural lead compounds from plant and microbial organisms; and in developing dietary supplements from traditional herbal medicines against different disease targets such as cancer, HIV, HCV, bird flu, Ebola/Marburg, TB, dental bacteria, and cancer chemoprevention.
