Research Interest

My major research interests are to uncover cell death mechanisms, especially Bcl2 family, to investigate molecular and signaling mechanisms of DNA repair, DNA replication stress, genomic instability and carcinogenesis, to study signaling mechanisms of tumor invasion/metastasis, and to develop novel small molecule anti-cancer agents and new therapeutic strategies for cancer therapy by targeting apoptosis and DNA repair signaling pathways. My second research area is studying environmental carcinogenesis, specifically mechanisms of tobacco smoke- or space radiation-induced DNA damage, genomic instability and carcinogenesis at the cellular, molecular and animal levels.
