Research Summary

Dr. Lu’s research interests focus on cancer etiology, cancer prognosis and survivorship. His research work integrates molecular biology, bioinformatics and epidemiology methods into investigating genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors in chronic diseases. His recent work includes 1)the assessment of epigenetic (non-coding RNA, DNA methylation) and genetic markers and ovarian, breast and pancreatic cancer prognosis; 2) the understanding of genetic and environmental factors, as well as their interactions in the risk of pancreatic, endometrial and liver cancer; 3) the functional studies of genetic variations in human diseases; 4) the lifestyle intervention and cancer-related molecular markers.

Extensive Research Description

1. Non-coding RNA in cancer risk and progression
2. DNA methylation in cancer risk and progression
3. Genome-wide association study on endometrial cancer
4. Case-control studies of endometrial and pancreatic cancer etiologic factors
