Research Interests/projects:

    -Our research interest is to study the biological function of brain cancer stem cells and signaling pathways that regulate
     brain cancer stem cells.  Projects include developing novel therapies for malignant pediatric and adult brain tumors
     based on targeting cancer stem cells and studying the mechanism by which genes or signaling pathways regulate brain
     cancer stem cells. This is a collaborative research among the Department of Neurosurgery, Cell and Development
     Biology, and the Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Michigan. It provides an excellent opportunity for
     training and career development. Candidate with strong experience in  molecular biology, signal  transduction, flow
     cytometry, and mouse models is preferred.
