Lung cancer was the most common form of cancer contributing 13% of the total number of new cases diagnosed in 2012 worldwide (http://www.wcrf.org/int/cancer-facts-figures/worldwide-data). There is an obvious correlation of lung cancer development with inhalation of polluted air and consumption of tobacco products. Our research team focuses on the molecular basis of lung cancers and diseases by using various “-Omics” approaches.
Current studying projects:
1) Proteomic and epigenetic analysis of lung carcinogenesis induced by environmental carcinogen(s)
2) Proteomic interrogation of the mechanisms of novel anti-cancer drugs for lung cancers
3) Oncokinases and their roles in lung carcinogenesis
4) Functional characterization of novel protein post-translational modifications and their relationship in human diseases and cancers
Our research projects are funded by grants from National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), Li Ka Shing Foundation, Fund for University Talents of Guangdong Province, and Guangdong Natural Science Foundation of China.
