Research Interests: 
  • Research Interests in the mechanism of cancer development and gene therapy for cancer.
  • A novel cancer-selective gene therapeutic oncolytic adenovirus vector system named AdSU, which can selective replicate and express therapeutic genes in cancer cells, was constructed. It is a promising system for targeted cancer gene therapy.
