Research

Research Summary: 

Major research interests of our laboratory are:

1. Fanconi anemia (FA) and cancer susceptibility

2. DNA repair and cell cycle checkpoints

3. Drug sensitivity and resistance in cancer chemotherapy

4. microRNAs and DNA repair/DNA damage response

The long-term objective of our research is to elucidate molecular mechanism of DNA damage response pathways, such as the FA-BRCA pathway, and their involvement in carcinogenesis and to utilize such information to refine diagnosis and therapy of patients with cancer or with FA.
