Research interest

Drug resistance and immunomodulation in cancers.

Host immune response and regulation in pathogen infection.


  • Investigation of epigenetic regulation mechanism of RNA granules in anticancer drug resistance
  • Establishment, validation and application of a mouse immune-modulatory platform
  • Viral factors-IRFs-IDO induction loop in HCV persistence regulate host immune response and virus replication
  • Molecular mechanisms for FIP on multiple RTKs via targeting to carbohydrate modified motif


  • Molecular biology (RT-qPCR, Western blot, ELISA, EMSA, ChIP)
  • Cellular biology (Confocal microscopy, Flow cytometry, IHC, IF)
  • High throughput screening validation (DNA methylation array, miRNA array, lectin array, lectin blot)
