Research in the Tsai Lab resides at the interface of chemistry and biology. We have expertise in:

  • organic synthesis
  • biochemistry & molecular cloning
  • genetic code expansion
  • mammalian cell culture

We are particularly interested in the synthesis of biological important molecules, functional investigation of small molecules in cells, and study of protein function through genetically incorporated unnatural amino acids. Ultimately, we want to improve the understanding of how cells function and apply the knowledge we learned to advance human health.
