    I have investigated cancer development from the perspective of cancer cell biology and mechanobiology. Cancer cells actively modify tumor microenvironment (TME) for tumor progression. Extracellular matrix (ECM), a major component of TME supporting embedded cells physically in the tissue, undergoes re-organization by cancer cells. The reorganized ECM reciprocally regulates cancer-related phenotypes such as invasive migration facilitating tumor progression. This suggests that the elucidation of cancer cell-ECM interaction can provide important cues to understanding cancer promoting mechanism and thus improving cancer treatment. Therefore, as leveraging in vitro ECM models wish nanofabricated surfaces or 3D model, our lab aims to address how cancer cell-ECM interaction stimulates cancer-promoting phenotypes such as invasive cell migration and heterogeneous cell-cell interaction synergically with oncogenic alteration.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
