Research Interests

My long-term interest is to understand the functions of autophagy in epidermal proliferation and skin diseases associated with abnormal proliferation. Autophagy is a multistage catabolic process by which cells adapt to differing intrinsic and extrinsic cellular stress-related situations. Even though studies have advanced our understanding on autophagy, the relationship between autophagy and induction of epidermal proliferation remain unclear.
