Research Interests:

  • Signal transduction / Chemoprevention reesrach with blood cancer, especially leukemia and lymphoma.
  • Most of my work has focused on molecular and cellular ocology research to elucidate the signal transduction pathways involved in the tumorigenesis mechanisms and to validate the action of various kinds of natural phytochemicals or synthetic chemicals using gene-targeted mouse model for novel target discovery and validation leading to therapeutic application.
