    Signaling mechanism in inflammation, cancer and neuronal degenerative disease

    My laboratory has a long-standing interest in understanding how the intracellular signaling network is integrated in response to a variety of extracellular signals, thereby controlling proliferation, programmed cell death and transformation. Our recent work focuses on elucidating the signaling mechanism in inflammatory disease, such as severe sepsis and colitis-associated cancer, and neuronal degenerative disease like Alzheimer’s disease, using a multifaceted experimental approach involving biochemistry, molecular cell biology, proteomics, computational modeling and animal models. Our long-term goal is to identify potential therapeutic targets for prevention and treatment of inflammatory and infectious disease, cancer and neuronal degenerative disease.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
