Characterization of cancer-related genes
Xin-Yuan Guan's Laboratory
The laboratory of Xin-Yuan Guan, Ph.D. is within the State Key Laboratory of Oncology in South China and Collaborative Innovation Center for Cancer Medicine, Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center. The research interests of Guan Lab include the characterization of cancer-related genes, cancer stem cells and tumor microenvironment in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) with multidisciplinary approaches and tools such as FISH, in vitro and in vivo functional assays, deep sequencing analysis, stemness-associated assays, and metastatic animal models.
1. Identification and characterization of cancer-related genes in HCC and ESCC.
2. Characterization of FGFR2+ cancer-associated fibroblasts(CAFs) in ESCC.
3. Identification and characterization of cancer stem cells (CSCs) in HCC and
4. Investigation of the role of HBV X gene in HCC pathogenesis.
