Research Fields

Research field 1: Cell biology

DNA repair plays a crucial role in the integrity maintenance of the human genome and the prevention of tumorigenesis. Reduced DNA repair capacity has been linked to genetic susceptibility to cancer. Nucleotide excision repair (NER) is a sophisticated DNA repair mechanism that repairs a substantial amount of chemically induced DNA damage and eliminates a wide range of structurally unrelated DNA lesions. I investigated the malfunction of XPF gene that may result in nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSC) and its role on the cisplatin resistant in nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) H441 and H661 cells.

Research field 2: Urology

Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is the abnormal flow of urine from the bladder back into the ureters. About one-third of children with urinary tract infection (UTI) are found to have VUR. The piglet animal model was developed in our lab to evaluate the consequences of VUR on nephropathy.
