Research Description
Endothelial cells are involved in many aspects of vascular biology, including in maintaining normal vascular functions and in participating in pathological process such as inflammation, cardiovascular disorder, and angiogenesis. Angiogenesis is a normal process in growth and development, as well as in wound healing. However, this is also a fundamental step in the transition of tumors from a dormant state to a malignant state. Therefore, my major research interest gradually shifted from discovery of vascular endothelial protection components to anti-angiogenic agents and further extended to cancer therapeutic agent development. Basic molecular techniques and several in vitro and in vivo models were established. Now I also manage and execute the services of Cancer Therapy Core Facility in our Institute since 2008. My research areas include:

(1)  
Studying for endothelial protective components on targeting JAK-STAT pathway and genes related to inflammation process.
(2)  
Development of anti-angiogenic components from synthetic compounds, natural products and fermentation products. In vitro and in vivo models were well established.
(3)  
Development of anti-cancer agents from natural product and synthetic compounds. Xenograft human lung cancer model was established. Target therapy on NOTCH pathway is ongoing for new therapeutic agent development.
