Area of Interest

We will use cell, animal model and disease specimens, integrated with molecular, cellular and developmental biology and pathology knowledge and methods, to study the regulatory mechanism of protein SUMO modification (SUMOylation) mediated cell signaling transduction, and its role in the development of human diseases, and provide theoretical basis for medical treatment.
