Courses Teaching
(1) Drug Design and Development (2 h per week in the 2nd semester, 2 credits)
(2) Advanced Chemical Biology I (4 h per week in the 1st semester, 3 credits)
(3) Glycobiology (to share with Dr. KH Khoo; 2 h per week in the 2nd semester, 2 credits)

Research Interest
Research in Lins lab involves multi-disciplinary areas including glycobiology, enzymology, synthetic chemistry and structural biology. Emphasis is stressed on (1) carbohydrate-related enzymes, in particular in association with diseases, and (2) protein cysteine modification linked to redox regulation. Development of enzyme inhibitors and molecular probes has been carried out to investigate how small molecules interact with proteins and in turn, to understand how they intervene in the pathogenesis or become useful for diagnosis.
