"Investigation of potential drug targets for Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections" - The goal of this project is to develop novel antibacterial agents for methicillin/multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) that are less prone to bacterial resistance. The hypothesis is that a class of central metabolic enzymes such as MRSA acetate kinase(ACK), MRSA fructose bisphosphate aldolase (FBPA), MRSA phosphotransacetylase (PTA), Mannitol-1-phosphate 5-dehydrogenase (M1P5D) and MRSA HPr kinase/phosphorylase(HprK/P), which are in silico essential to bacterial growth and absent in humans, are promising drug targets

"Investigation of the cellular and molecular mechanism of the pharmacological action of Bai-Lian-San-Jie-Tang (BLSJT) on endometriosis" - The goal of the second project is to investigate how BLSJT treat endometriosis at the cellular and molecular level. Once the mechanism is elucidated and effective fraction(s) is /are refined, the project becomes more promising in that it sheds light on a new class of drugs treating endometriosis, following the footprint of arteannuinm, an alternative of Quinine in malaria treatment.
