Our lab studies molecular genetics and signaling pathways during liver cancer growth to develop new therapies to treat this deadly disease.
We are current recruiting graduate students as well as postdoc fellows who are interested in liver cancer research. We especially welcome URM applicants. Please contact Dr. Chen - January 2, 2019
