Ahn, Jung-Mo


Jung-Mo Ahn is an Associate Professor of Chemistry, focusing on bio-organic and medicinal chemistry. Through his research he is seeking to understand the chemistry and biology of peptides and proteins, and to develop new approaches for manipulating these properties with purposefully designed small organic molecules. His projects include:

  • Development of peptidomimetics for the treatment of Diabetes Mellitus
  • Development of therapeutic agents for biodefense against bacterial infection
  • Rational design of small molecules for mimicking protein secondary structures to modulate protein-protein interactions involved in cancer
  • Development of metabolically stable peptides as molecular imaging agents for non-invasive assessment of pancreatic beta-cells
