Additional Tools and Researcher Information
My research focuses on elucidating the roles and the underlying mechanisms of DNA damage and repair pathways in tumor development, progression, and metastasis, as well as developing novel therapeutic methods to target cancer cells.
DNA damage response and genomic instability in cancer
DNA repair deficiency and genomic instability are important hallmarks of cancer. By elucidating the roles of BRIT1/MCPH1, an important protein involved in DNA damage and repair pathways, I will provide insights into the relationship of DNA repair deficiency with genomic instability, cancer initiation, progression, and/or metastasis.
Translational research and treatment of cancer
In this area, I will investigate how to target cancer cells with genomic instability, which may eventually lead to the discovery of drugs for cancer treatment.
