Research Interests

I have been working on prostate cancer and epigenetics for over 15 years and published over 30 peer-reviewed publications. My major contributions to the field of prostate cancer and other cancer research include: (1) identification of PcG protein histone methyltransferase EZH2 as a biomarker for aggressive breast and prostate cancer; (2) characterization of EZH2 as an oncogene by repressing multiple tumor suppressors in breast and prostate cancer; (3) discovery of genomic loss of miR-101 in breast and prostate cancer and the upregulation of EZH2 by miR-101 in cancer; and (4) the coordinated regulation between Polycomb Repressive Complexes 1 and 2 in breast and prostate cancer progression. My work has demonstrated EZH2 and BMI1 as valuable therapeutic targets in cancer, and several pharmaceutical companies are developing EZH2- or BMI1- specific inhibitors for cancer therapy.
