Our new paper in Cancer Research

Very happy to see our work on FSTL1+ CAFs in driving HCC stemness and metastasis finally published in the most recent issue of Cancer Research. Also out is our recently published and related mini-review article on the role of CAFs in the maintenance of stemness in the tumor microenviornment. Very well done, JJ, Carol, Natalie, and the team. We also thank our collaborators for their support.

Our new publication in Gut

Stepped out of our comfort zone and explored into lineage tracing and scRNA-seq. Years of hard work with great preserverance from our three leading authors Lena, Ken and Eric; and a wonderful collaboration with Dr. Joshua Ho. Excited to share our lab’s latest work published in Gut.

Lineage tracing and single-cell analysis reveal proliferative Prom1+ tumor-propagating cells and their dynamic cellular transition during liver cancer progression – read all about it here!

10th International Workshop on Cancer Systems Biology at Jilin University

Happy to have the opportunity to participate in the 10th International Workshop on Cancer Systems Biology (ICSB2021) hosted by Jilin University from July 31 to August 1, 2021. The workshop gathered 20 chinese academics working in different parts of the world. I was told the presentations attracted over 10,000 audience on various social platforms. The power of virtual conferences!
