Research Field

Pharmacology of anticancer drugs

Research Interests

Dr. Zheng’s research focuses on the development of targeted anticancer drugs and investigating the underlying mechanism. The research interests includes microtubule inhibitors, tumor-targeting peptide and drug combinations. The recent research includes 1) First identification of a novel nitrobenzoate microtubule inhibitor IMB5046, 2) Finding that focal adhesion kinase can regulate endothelial blebbing activated by microtubule-depolymerizing agents.
