Laboratory of bioanalytical and environmental chemistry (LBAEC)
All life phenomena and the environmental processes can both be described as the chain of chemical reactions. Altering those reactions, problems, such as an illness, environmental changes arise. Therefore, understanding such chemical reactions network will help us approaching essentials of a life and/or natural environment, which in turn leads us developing a new chemical approach for medical treatment or environmental pollution. The mission of LBAEC is to develop new analytical methods that can measure and/or observe directly interactions between chemical substances and living cells/organisms, and to understand molecular, cellular, individual and ecosystem-level mechanism that life respond to the chemical environmental changes. Our long-term goal is to use the knowledge gained from our research to contribute to solution of drug design or an environmental problem. The complex nature of our research topic requires that we use a combination of chemical, analytical, and molecular biological tools. We thus are an interdisciplinary group that involves researchers with a background in chemistry, biology of environmental science and engineering.
