Research Interest

My research interest focuses on the cellular and molecular basis of cancer progression, with particular focus on molecules regulating tumor growth and tumor-stromal interactions. In particular, my research centers on factors that supports the growth and tumorigenesis of liver cancer. Research on factors promoting liver cancer growth is crucial to understanding the development of cancer and for designing anti-cancer drugs.
