Research interests

  1. Mechanism of apoptosis:  Role of WW domain-containing oxidoreductase WOX1 in regulation of mitochondrial apoptosis and cancerous progression.  We discovered this gene in year 2000, and have been the leader in the field (research supported by NSC, NHRI, & Dept. Defense USA).
  2. Signaling transduction and neurodegeneration: Elucidating signaling network that controls neurodegeneration (research supported by NSC & NHRI).
  3. Naturally occurring small-size anticancer proteins: Role of Zfra in protein turnover and tumor progression (research supported by Dept. Defense USA& DOH, Taiwan).
