Research Summary

My research interest focuses on the origin of ovarian cancer. We use cell and animal models to investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying the initiation of ovarian cancer. Currently my lab is working on understanding the influence of ovulation-associated factors at the early stage of ovarian cancer initiation. Furthermore, we also investigate the role of menopause in the development of ovarian cancer at cellular and molecular levels. Our goal is to discover new early detection markers and therapeutic targets in order to improve the survival rate of ovarian cancer patients.
