In the Laboratory of Mechanistic Glycobiology at Michigan Technological University, we have been working in four distinct but related areas. Our findings can significantly influence human health-related research. (1) We have documented a molecular strategy that can improve drug designing. (2) We have shown that the tumor-associated protein galectin-3 can create problems in cancer biomarker assays by hiding the biomarkers. (3) In another project, we reported that the role of galectin-3 in cancer could be more complicated than what is reported in the literature. (4) Our team also detected a novel natural product with anti-fungal and anti-cancer activities.
