The Liu lab is interested in urologic tissue repair and renewal involving intercellular signaling and cell-cell interaction. Abnormal interaction could be the basis for the development of diseases such as cancer. Thus, the gene expression difference between cell types in tumor and their respective normal counterpart is key to understanding these processes. The differentially expressed genes are also useful as biomarkers for disease detection.
