   Research Interests:
The major interest of our lab is inductive signals involved in regulating tumor and stem cell. We use Drosophila, chicken, mouse, monkey and tree shrew as model systems to study the fundamental and prevalent mechanisms that control tumor and stem cells self-renew, proliferation, differentiation and so on. We are also establishing tumor models in the primate animals and developing drug screening platforms for serial cancers in the lab
