Professor, Biomedical Genetics and Oncology
University of Rochester, USA
Wei Hsu earned his PhD from Mount Sinai Medical Center and completed a postdoctoral training at Columbia University Medical Center. He is currently a Professor of Biomedical Genetics and Oncology at University of Rochester. His research interest is to investigate the Morphogenetic Signaling Network in Development and Disease. Work from his lab has led to important contributions to our understanding of Wnt signaling and its interplay with other signaling pathways in various developmental processes in health and disease. He has received distinctions, including NKF fellowship, March of Dimes award, DOD IDEA award and PHS awards from the NIH. He has served as a grant reviewer for NIH, DOD, NSF and private foundations, and a referee for the prestigious journals, including Science Signaling, Development, PLoS Genetics and Cell Death and Differentiation, and on the editorial board for Cancer Management and Research, Breast Cancer-Targets and Therapy and International Journal of Women’s Health.
My Research Interests include Craniofacial Development, Skeletal Development and Dysplasia, Breast Development and Cancer, Stem Cell Biology, Regenerative Medicine, Neural Development and Degeneration, Hair Follicle Development, Placental Development, Wnt, FGF, BMP, Small Ubiquitin-like Modifiers. Thanks, Wei.
