    Research Interest:
    The current research direction in my lab is focused on the genomic regulation of epithelial cell behavior (i.e., migration). We used both oral cancer and wound healing as models for our study. Our recent studies demonstrated that microRNAs are major genomic regulators of epithelial cell migration, invasion and EMT.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 8

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Prior lab experience preferred.
