Join Yale Chemistry for a Silliman Organic Chemistry Seminar with Ku-Lung (Ken) Hsu, the Stephen F. and Fay Evans Martin Endowed Associate Professor & CPRIT Scholar, Department of Chemistry, University of Texas at Austin.
Dr. Hsu’s research program applies the principles of chemistry and chemical biology to study fundamental protein biology. A special emphasis is placed on proteins involved in metabolism of fats (i.e. lipids) because lipids are important chemical signals for basic communication in biology and historically have served as valuable targets for medicine. The Hsu lab pursues innovations in covalent chemistry, chemical proteomics and metabolomics to probe lipid molecules and pathways in living systems with the long-term goal of devising new pharmacological strategies for immunology and cancer biology.
Faculty Host: Stacy Malaker
