Keystone eSymposia – Cancer Stem Cells

Ecstatic to have the opportunity to participate at the Keystone eSymposia on Cancer Stem Cells: Advances in Biology and Clinical Translation held May 19-21, 2021. Shared my group’s recent research progress on how the non-cellular components of the tumor microenvironment shapes cancer stemness in the liver; and learnt about the exciting new projects from others! Postdoc Lena and PhD student Huajian in the lab also shared their recent research findings in a short talk and poster abstract. Link to full program can be found here.

SKLLR Annual Symposium 2019/20

July 18 2020 – This year’s State Key Laboratory of Liver Research (SKLLR) Annual Symposium was postponed again and again due to COVID-19. But despite all obstacles, the event was successfully held online through ZOOM on July 18th 2020. Our Postdoctoral Fellow Dr. Tin-Lok Wong gave a presentation on his latest work “CRAF methylation by PRMT6 regulates aerobic glycolysis driven hepatocarcinogenesis via ERK-dependent PKM2 nuclear relocalization and activation” which was just published in the April 2020 issue of Hepatology.
