My research involves biochemical and biophysical methods for studying the cellular
mechanism of action of a novel platinum–acridine anticancer agent.
- Differentiating the repair mechanisms of the DNA adducts produced by Pt-acridine and the currently used platinum-based anti-tumor drug, cisplatin
- Confocal fluorescence spectroscopy study on Pt-acridine uptake and localization in cancer cells using novel conjugation chemistry
- X-ray crystallography study of a model DNA duplex containing the monofunctional adduct formed by our prototypical Pt-acridine
