Summary

My research focuses on the development of novel therapeutic agents and approaches for cancer treatment, particularly the gene therapy and virotherapy by using adenovirus system. I have been developing a series of cancer-targeted oncolytic adenovirus, e.g. pancreatic cancer-targeted OAd and cancer stem cell-targeted OAd. My goal is to develop a systemically injectable oncolytic adenovirus for cancer therapy.
