Academic Title


Research Program

Molecular Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention

Dr. Pei's interest is in a variety of problems at the interface of chemistry and biology. A major area is to determine the molecular basis of biological processes by chemical methods. Dr. Pei is especially interested in identifying the interaction partners of protein modular domains and the in vivo substrates of protein tyrosine phosphatases. Another area is to develop new methodology for the synthesis, screening, and identification of cyclic peptides and peptidomimetics for biological activities and as organocatalysts. A third area is to determine the catalytic mechanisms of enzymes and to design inhibitors as research tools and potential therapeutic agents.
