Research Interest:
Develop the therapeutic compounds from medicinal nature herbs which have ability to inhibit inflammation; Fundamental impact to human health

Profile:
Hong Ye is an associate professor in the Department of Medicine, University of Louisville. She has a long academic history as a structural biologist and a biochemist, determined various macromolecular structures on proteins, protein/peptide complexes and protein/protein complexes which related to either DNA replication, recombination and repair process. She also dissected the protein functions in addition to determining structures. After she puts her focus on identification and characterization of the active compounds from the medicinal herbs, she has established that the medicinal AO herbal extract had the inhibition activity on inflammation by mouse model. In addition, she founds this herbal extract were able to inhibit the pro-inflammatory cytokines including TNFα, and to promote the activity of anti-inflammatory cytokines. The project we proposed here will further separate the herbal extract to individual compounds and dissect the function of each compound. The proposed studies have the potential to develop into a novel treatment for inflammation related diseases, especially rheumatoid arthritis. As the PI, she will oversee all aspects including experiment design, ingredient purification, crystallization and structure determination.
