We are interested in the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying tissue homeostasis and the development of cancer. Focusing on the crosstalk between stem cells and surrounding environment, we are dissecting how normal stem cells are regulated in their niches and how the tumor microenvironment affects cancer stem cells to progress cancer malignancy. Ultimately, our goal is to apply basic knowledge from our research to develop novel methods for cancer detection and treatments.
