Research interests

Previous research as part of a masters project involved understanding the role  of nocoding small RNAs  (EBERS) in Epstein-Barr virus.

Current research will be focused on identifying the key molecular switches in the microenvironment that can determine the consequences of the Ras activation in IPF or lung cancer. Understanding the protein networks and the signalling pathways from different disease associated fibroblasts that can affect onset and pathogenesis of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) associated diseases.


Supervisor: Dr Yihua Wang
PhD Research: Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) induced by RAS activation in alveolar Type II cells leads to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) or lung cancer invasion?

Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) induced by RAS activation in alveolar Type II cells leads to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) or lung cancer invasion?

This project aims to identify molecular switches that can dictate the ability of RAS to contribute to either lung cancer or IPF using 3D culture and proteomics
