Zhihong Shan, M.D., Ph.D.
Dr. Shan's research focuses on identification of novel tumor suppressor gene(s) (TSGs) that localize to the D9S126 region on chromosome 9p. Current research expertise is centered on three interralated areas: functional characterization of TUSC1 as a tumor suppressor gene involved in lung tumorigenesis and perhaps other cancer types, identification of interacting proteins to TUSC1 protein and establishing a knock-out mouse model for TUSC1 gene.
