Research Summary

Searching new targets for cancer therapy via using combined high-tech tools.

Extensive Research Description

Translational Research: discover bio-markers, therapeutic targets via selective tissue dissection and proteomics using clinical specimens.
Brain tumor therapy: use combined gene therapy, immuno-therapy and newly developed strategy like small molecules.
Technology improvement and invention: design and validate new technical improvement, crossing the fields of proteomics, microdissection, genomics, tissue array, neurosurgical instruments, drug delivery, etc. Collaboration is extremely welcome and considered as a MUST!
