Research Interest

Gan has strong interest in pharmacokinetic analysis using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). To date she has successfully developed detection method for various analgesics (tramadol, fentanyl, morphine), anti-diabetics (repaglinide, metformin), malaria (artesunate, amodiaquine), anicoagulant (warfarin),anti-hypertensive (propanolol), anticancer (arabinoside-C, imatinib, doxorubin) and other substances including paraquat and amphetamine-type stimulants. She has also developed detection methods for various alleles present in Asian populations including for CYP2D6, CYP3A4, CYP2C9, CYP2A6 dan CYP2C8 genes by using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for pharmacogenetic studies. Currently, Gan has also embarked on natural products research and have interests in analysis of honey quality and potential therapeutic activities of various components in honey and honey products including propolis, bee venom and royal jelly.
