Chong Yie Kie joined Monash University Malaysia as a research fellow in July 2021. She obtained her PhD degree at Osaka University, Japan under the supervision of Prof. Yasuhiro Kajihara in the field of Organic Biochemistry. Her PhD studies focused on the efficient approaches for semisynthesis of homogenous glycoprotein by utilizing bacterial protein expression and chemical synthesis. She is specialised in medicinal and organic synthetic chemistry, protein synthesis and nanomedicine sciences. She is passionate in medicinal chemistry research and would like to discover new therapeutics with the in-silico molecular docking study. Currently, she is working on synthesis of therapeutic hybrid antimicrobials agents using a computer-guided approach.
