Research Interests:

    Cancer systems biology and functional “-omics”. We apply multidisciplinary approaches to systematically study gene regulatory networks and pathways that play important roles in pathogenesis of major diseases such as cancers.

    Both computational and experimental principles from systems biology, bioinformatics, genetics and molecular biology are being used. Current research is focused on post-transcriptional and translational regulatory networks and their detailed functional mechanisms in cancers. Our long-term goal is to provide molecular basis of novel therapeutic approaches.
