Dehua Pei is a Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at The Ohio State University. His research group discovered a family of small cyclic peptides as highly efficient cell-penetrating peptides and developed a novel technology for discovering macrocyclic inhibitors against challenging targets such as protein-protein interactions. These technologies make it possible to develop macrocyclic and protein therapeutics against intracellular protein-protein interactions. Dr. Pei obtained his B.S. degree in chemistry from Wuhan University, China and a PhD degree from University of California, Berkeley. Prior to joining the faculty at The Ohio State University, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School.
