Research

Areas of our current research activities:

  1. roles of growth factors in regulating cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis in early development;
  2. signal transduction mechanisms of growth factor actions;
  3. transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression;
  4. roles of growth factors and hormones in modulating growth, development, and longevity in response to hypoxia and nutrient restriction.
