Research work

People are continuously exposed to varying amounts of chemicals that have been shown to cause cancers in a wide variety of animal species. My research team has been working on the cellular responses and underlying mechanisms induced by environmental chemical carcinogens. It is also becoming clear that chromatin-based epigenetics has an essential role in cancer biology. We focus on understanding how epigenetic modifications such as DNA methylations and histone modifications contribute to tumorigenesis.
