Area(s) of Expertise

Selective chemical reactions on natural proteins: Research in the Ohata group—leveraging expertise in organic/organometallic chemistry, protein science, bioconjugation techniques, fluorescence imaging, and biochemical analysis—focuses on (1) the development of chemical tools, especially protein labeling methods to study chemistry of proteins in living systems (e.g. mammalian cells and animal samples) and (2) the creation of functional protein conjugates with the chemical tools for material and medicinal applications.
