Research topic: p53 is a major tumor suppressor in human which plays a central role in tumor prevention and recent studies have also shown that p53 can involve in various metabolic pathways, such as oxidative phosphorylation, glycolysis, glutaminolysis etc. Through the regulation of these metabolic processes, p53 maintains the homeostasis of cellular metabolism in cells. My project is to figure out the metabolic vulnerabilities of p53 mutant based on Eµ-myc lymphoma mouse model.

Research topic: Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) mainly affects the elderly. Despite the advances in the characterization of molecular alterations and optimization of treatment in younger patients, the outcome of AML in the elderly remains very poor and comprehensive molecular studies have yet to be performed to uncover the diversity of molecular alterations in elderly AML. In this project, we aim to investigate in detail genetic lesions of elderly AML to unravel the molecular background of this distinct disease. In particular, we aim to delineate the cellular pathways that are specifically affected in elderly, to identify and functionally investigate aberrations that might provide new insights into the underlying mechanisms of chemoresistance and early relapse seen in this patient cohort. Thus, we anticipate identifying specific molecular targets as a prerequisite for the development of molecular therapy strategies to improve treatment outcome in older AML patients.
