I (as a MD.PhD) have a strong desire to translate laboratory discoveries into effective treatments for patients. I am founder of the first translational research group in IUMS and worked on several translational projects with close relationship to my clinician colleagues. We established engineered stem cells to transfer the death receptors to animal model of tumors in vivo. We also have established the exosome extraction and investigation from human cancer patients. Our lab also has set up Micro RNA transfected tumor cells to address their role in tumor development. So, we are going to use all intelligent biosimilar intervention to tackle cancer as a present big health challenge of our century.
