Major Research Themes & Current Projects
DescriptionTitle
My major interest is to identify and study tumor suppressor genes in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) by the combination of mono-chromosome transfer, gene expression profiling, and genotyping techniques. The underlining mechanisms of tumor suppression, which include the anti-angiogenic, apoptosis-inducing, and growth inhibitory effects are currently investigated. Polymorphism analysis of some of our tumor suppressor genes and their associations with NPC risk are my other major research interest.Identification and study of tumor suppressor genes in nasopharyngeal carcinoma
