Research interests

My research is to detect the therapeutic effect of herbal extracts on cancers and explore their underlying molecular mechanisms. Currently, my project is about the pharmacological effect of a traditional Chinese medicinal herb on breast cancer.

This interdisciplinary research project covers a wide range of areas including molecular and cell biology, structural and system biology, proteomics and bioinformatics, biochemistry and pharmacological. I am interested on developing a novel approach which will help to discover a new therapy for the treating of breast cancer.

Research project: Anti-tumour effects of active ingredients from Limonium sinense (Girard) Kuntze extracts: a potential link with hypoxia
