My research interests include understanding the fundamental biochemical and molecular mechanisms that underlie cancerous processes. A particular focus on our research is on the role of estrogen receptor, nuclear receptor coregulators, chromatin remodeling, DNA repair, and growth regulation in cancer cells. Those researches can help us to understand cancer cell biology and to develop new cancer therapeutic strategies.
