Research:

Genetic control of animal development and tumorigenesis


Education:

Postdoctoral Fellow:  National Institute for Basic Biology, Japan
Postdoctoral Fellow: Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute, Toronto
D.Sc. (Ph.D.): Nagoya University, Japan
M. Phil.: University of Hong Kong
B.Sc. (Hon):   University of Hong Kong


Fields of Interest:

  • Cellular and Molecular Structure and Function
  • Genetic Models of Development and Disease

Research Interests:

We are interested in understanding the genetic control of animal development and the molecular mechanisms involved in tumorigenesis.  We utilize molecular genetic approaches in mice to examine how Gli transcription factors are regulated by Hedgehog-dependent and -independent mechanisms, and the function of Iroquois transcription factors in heart and limb development.
