What I do

My research aim is to develop and validate sensitive liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) methods for quantification of drug and metabolite concentrations in biological matrices to support various pharmacokinetic studies and clinical trials.

My research expertise

Bioanalytical chemistry, Drug and endogenous compound bioanalysis, Pharmacokinetics, Drug metabolism, Metabolite identification


PhD, Bioanalytical Chemistry, Chiba University, Chiba, Japan, 1996
MS, Pharmacology, Chongqing University of Medical Sciences, Chongqing, China, 1989
MD, Medicine, Southeast University, Nanjing, China, 1986


The Drug Studies Unit, Analytical Division, specializes in the development of methods needed to detect and quantify drug substances in biological fluids. Their methodologies are applied to the testing of drug treatments and therapies of major importance in human health and well-being. They strive to secure and succeed in a variety of educational, pharmaceutical industry and governmental projects, for it is these projects that offer the staff and academic personnel the opportunity to develop their abilities and apply their expertise to advance their understanding of problems in drug research.
