Our laboratory is interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms involving hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and alcoholic liver disease (ALD). More specifically, using molecular and cell biology techniques, state-of-the-art cell imaging, transgenic and knockout mouse models, and clinical samples, we investigate molecular signaling pathways that drive or mediate HCC and ALD development. Our ultimate goal is to identify novel therapeutic strategies and reagents to prevent and treat HCC and ALD. In addition, we are also interested in studying the resistance mechanisms of FDA-approved targeted therapies for HCC, which shall improve the efficacy of these drugs in treating HCC.
Scientific Archives is a global publisher initiated with the mission of ensuring equal opportunity for accessing science to research community all over the world. Spreading research findings with great relevance to all channels without any barrier is our goal. We want to overcome the challenges of Open Access with ensured quality and transparency.
