Research Field

1. Screening of targeted anticancer compounds and mechanical research

2. Functional and molecular signal pathway Study of cancer gene in tumor occurrence and development

Research Interests

Get the Ph. degree of Institute of Medicinal Biotechnology Chinese Academy of Medical Science in July 2010. I was engaged in the role of oncogene in the development of leukemia during doctoral study, and performed signal pathway research and a lot of assays in vivo or in vitro to detect biological activity. After Ph.D graduate I carried out screening research of anticancer drug targeting topoisomerase. I chaired the National Natural Science Foundation of a “Study of anticancer activity and mechanism of RasGAP peptide derivatives against G3BP” (Grant No. 81102464), Institutes fund ”Study of Design, synthesis and anticancer activity of benzophenanthridine derivatives” and sub-project “Anticancer effect and molecular mechanisms study of the novel nano from state key development project “Research and development of the novel nano drug against tumor according to clinical demands” (Grant No. 2016YF0201500). Recent 5 years published 21 papers and among them 15 SCI papers were published as first author.
