Research interests:

We are interested in studying histone modification and lncRNA- mediated mechanisms involved in tumorigenesis, aiming to identify potential therapeutic strategies and to evaluate small molecule agents for cancer treatment. We are also interested in understanding the interaction between mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) and cancer cells in tumor microenvironment. By characterizing the potencies of MSC and MSC-derived extracellular vesicles, we hope to define the therapeutic potentials of MSC in regenerative medicine.
