General Research Interest

Molecular mechanisms underlying environmentally-induced cancers and its prevention

Research Description

 (1) Structure-function relationship of oncogens and tumor suppressors;  (2) Biomarkers in the early stage of oral cancer progression;  (3) Biophysical and biophysical properties of ankyrin repeat proteins.

Transinstitutional Work

(1) In collaboration with Dr. Weghorst to identify biomarkers in the early stage of oral cancer progression;  (2) In collaboration with a group of PIs in OSU CCC (headed by Drs. Weghorst and Clinton) to indentify natural products with potential in chemopreventation of oral cancers.
