General Research Interest

My major research interest is to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the anti-cancer effects of small-molecule agents and microRNA; and establish their pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic correlation in rodent models of acute myeloid leukemia.

Research Description

We are currently performing pre-clinical testing of synthetic microRNAs with the goal of moving them into the clinical trials and eventually developing them as cancer therapeutics. A second research area is to elucidate novel mechanisms of actions of nucleoside analogs. Information from these studies will provide basis for new drug combinations for cancer therapy.
