I did my undergraduate degree in Chinese Academy of Medical Science and received Ph.D from University of Melbourne at Australia. I was a postdoctoral fellow in Michael Karin's laboratory, University of California at San Diego from 1996 to 2001. I began to establish my laboratory as an Assistant Professor at Science Park Research Division, MD Anderson Cancer Center in November 2001 and came to NCI-Frederick as a Principal Investigator in September 2008.


The research interests of The Inflammation and Tumorigenesis Section at the LEI are to understand the physiological activities of IKKα in skin tumorigenesis and inflammation and reveal the mechanisms of how IKKα regulates these function by using genetic animal models, including Ikkα conditional knockout, Ikkα kinase inactive knockin, and IKKα transgenic mice, and molecular biology approaches.
