1. Basic and translational research of stanniocalcin-1 (STC-1) as a potent anti-inflammation and anti-oxidant molecule for treating kidney and heart diseases: utilizing multiple genetically engineered mouse models such as STC-1 knock-outs, STC-1 transgenic mice, and tissue-specific STC-1 knockdown in shSTC-1 transgenic mice via ultrasound-mediated delivery of Cre recombinase.
2. Molecular actions of anti-estrogen drugs in breast cancer cells: using a variety of gene transcription assays, such as coactivator/transcriptional factor interaction assays (co-immunoprecipitation and GST-pull down), gene promoter luciferase reporter assay and chromatin-immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assay.
3. Basic and translational research of T-type Ca2+ channels in diabetes and cancers using electrophysiological approaches (e.g., Patch-Clamp), biochemical and pharmacological approaches and animal models.
4. Translational research of radiation and/or chemotherapy-induced lung inflammation and fibrosis using animal models and biochemical and histological approaches.
5. Clinical research expertise: diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary diseases using transbronchial needle aspiration and fiberoptic bronchoscopy.
