Research Focus

The research in Luo's lab focuses on mechanistic and translational research in molecular signaling that connects epigenetic factors with genetic events during tumor genesis, progression and metastasis. Specifically, Luo's lab is working on how epigenetic signaling regulates cancer initial cells self-renewal and trans-differentiation.
