Qi-En Wang, PhD, focuses his current research interests on cancer stem cell biology, DNA repair and chemotherapy resistance. He is particularly interested in investigating the DNA damage responses after cisplatin and PARP inhibitor treatment in ovarian cancer, the impact of DNA damage responses on the tumor relapse and the development of acquired therapeutic resistance in ovarian cancer, as well as how cancer stem cells survive DNA damaging agent treatment and how the cancer stem cell population is maintained in the epithelial ovarian tumor.
