Biographical Info

My research interest is focused on the role of inducible heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) in the pathogenesis of intestinal tumors, including how HSP70 interacts with ß-catenin, the nucleotide exchange factor (Bag-1), and MAPK-dependent pathways and promotes ß-catenin stabilization, activation, and nuclear translocation to initiate tumor proliferation. I also interested in the role of High-mobility group box 1 protein (HMGB1) during inflammation, cell differentiation, cell migration, and tumor progression and the role of microbes in the initiation or progression of colorectal cancers.
