Working Experience

Research Interests

The main goal of Shui research group is to develop versatile mass spectrometry (MS)-based technologies for GPCR ligand discovery and cell signaling study. Over the years, our group has gained extensive experiences in developing high resolution mass spectrometry-centered analytical pipelines for comprehensive or targeted protein and metabolite analysis. Our expertise in proteomics and metabolomics research has been exploited to establish affinity mass spectrometry technology for ligand screening towards protein targets of therapeutic importance. These new approaches have unique advantages in building a high-throughput screening platform for early-phase drug discovery as well as probingreceptor-drug interactions and signaling selectivity within the cell.
