Research fields:
Research in the Chen group is focused on two major areas: chemical biology and bioinorganic chemistry.
Chemical Probes for Discovery and Imaging of Biological Processes in Living Cells and Animals. Compared to conventional biological methods, chemical probes offer a precise and powerful approach to study biology at the cellular and organism level with minimal perturbation to the intact native system. We are developing new chemical tools for real-time monitoring of metals, metabolites, and enzyme activities in living cells using small-molecule fluorescent sensors. The development of functional optical imaging, bioluminescent protein, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents for in vivo imaging in living animals is also being pursued.
Redox Biology in Cancer. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) like hydrogen peroxide are conventionally viewed as phagocytic killing agents of pathogens in immune response or as contributors to oxidative stress and inflammation events associated with aging and diseases ranging from cancer to diabetes to heart disease. However, newly emerging data suggests that hydrogen peroxide can also be an essential component of normal signal transduction cascades. We are studying the attenuation on the signaling of hydrogen peroxide and related ROS and their effects on the growth, proliferation, differentiation, and migration of cancer tumor cells and stem cells relevant to anti-tumor chemotherapeutics and regenerative medicine.
Energy Catalysis and Green Chemistry. The development of new catalysts that allow efficient energy storage and release in the form of chemical fuels is essential to meeting this ultimate goal. In this context, we are pursuing fundamental synthetic and physical inorganic chemistry to prepare and characterize new coordination complexes with reduced environmental impact that utilize cheap and earth-abundant metals. These metal complexes are being applied to develop stoichiometric and catalytic reactions towards water, oxygen and related small molecules of energy consequence that work in benign solvents like water. We are also exploring fundamental aspects of metal-ligand multiple bonding and small-molecule activation using first- and/or second-sphere coordination chemistry approaches.
