Dr. Hu research interests are to understand the physiological activities of IKKα in skin tumorigenesis and inflammation and reveal the mechanisms of how IKKα regulates these function by using genetic animal models, including Ikkα conditional knockout, Ikkα kinase inactive knockin, and IKKα transgenic mice, and molecular biology approaches.
