General Research InterestJNK signaling, polarity in glioma invasion, Alzheimer's disease
Research DescriptionThe long-term goal of Dr. Yoon's lab is to understand how the balance between cell survival and death is maintained in the adult nervous system. Currently, they are focusing on the role of stress kinase, JNK signaling, under pathological conditions.
Transinstitutional WorkIn collaboration with Drs. M. Viapiano and C.H. Kwon, we are investigating the role of small GTPase and polarity proteins in glioma invasion.
