Welcome to the Hang Laboratory

Our laboratory is broadly interested in elucidating the chemical mechanisms that modulate host-microbe interactions and translating these discoveries into new therapeutic approaches. To dissect the complex chemical interactions between the host cells, pathogens and the microbiota, we have developed chemical methods to characterize metabolite targets in host cells as well as microbes and employed key animal models to discover novel protective factors from specific commensal bacteria. These studies have revealed fundamental chemical mechanisms of specific metabolites in host immunity and microbial virulence as well as afforded new opportunities for therapeutic development.
