Research Summary

Oxidative stress and redox regulation in carcinogenesis and cancer chemoprevention

Research Detail

My research focuses on studying redox regulation, biomarkers, and signaling pathways for prevention and treatment of cancer. The goals are to identify key proteins and/or signaling pathways in cancer progression and for chemoprevention or targeted therapy.
