research statement

My research interests include: (1) the molecular basis of hormone resistance in liver disease, especially the negative effect of PTEN in insulin/PI3K/Akt signaling, and (2) the use of current medical knowledge to elucidate the potential applications of some of the techniques used in traditional Chinese medicine.
