Research Areas:

Alternative splicing is believed to be one of the key mechanisms for enlarging the molecular diversity of higher eukaryotes and more than 95% of human genes express multiple mRNA isoforms. Many alternative splicing events are regulated at the developmental level and an increasing number of human diseases have been attributed to aberrant splicing events. We have been employing knockout/transgenic mice and multiple techniques to study the roles of deregulated alterative splicing in metabolic diseases and cancers.
