Chemical Immunology – Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Chemical BiologyPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Sep-16
The research in the Yoo group focuses on the development of new strategies to study and manipulate the human immune system. By applying chemoproteomic platforms combined with high-throughput and phenotypic screenings, we aim to develop chemical probes that specifically detect and perturb key regulators and functional enzymes involved in immune activation and tolerance. We are interested in understanding biological mechanisms of immunomodulators in the treatment of cancer and identifying novel therapeutic targets. The successful applicant will work in a collaborative and multidisciplinary environment.
