Focus of Work

Bio

The Liu lab studies the molecular mechanisms underlying cancer stem cells (CSCs) and metastasis through four ongoing interactive basic and translational research projects: (1) to understand CSCs in metastasis using cutting-edge single cell sequencing and CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technologies; (2) to image CSC behavior and interactions with immune cells during metastasis using bioluminescence imaging and intravital imaging systems; (3) to target CSCs with novel therapeutics delivered by exosomes ...[Read full text]The Liu lab studies the molecular mechanisms underlying cancer stem cells (CSCs) and metastasis through four ongoing interactive basic and translational research projects: (1) to understand CSCs in metastasis using cutting-edge single cell sequencing and CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technologies; (2) to image CSC behavior and interactions with immune cells during metastasis using bioluminescence imaging and intravital imaging systems; (3) to target CSCs with novel therapeutics delivered by exosomes and nanoparticles; (4) to develop circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and circulating exosome-based biomarkers for cancer diagnosis, treatment monitoring, and prognosis.[Shorten text]
