The research in my laboratory focuses primarily on two aspects of cancers,experimental therapeutics and cancer biology. In experimental therapeutics, we are investigating the structures and functions of ABC transporters, 14-3-3sigma, and fatty acid synthase. We also perform drug discovery research targeting these proteins as well as STAT3 and survivin using chemoinformatics and rational design. In cancer biology, we are investigating how translational initiation factors are involved in regulating signal transduction, cell growth and differentiation. More specifically, we are interested in the role of eIF3 complex in tumorigenesis and cancer prognosis.
