Research Interest

Current research interests include: (1) the physiological role of class B1 GPCR in reproduction; (2) the role of GPCR dimerization in hypothalamus-pituitary-gonad (HPG) axis; and (3) the potential role of GPCR dimerization in cancer pathogenesis and progression. Those researches involve using high throughput system in cell signaling studies and using animal models, such as transgenic mice, in physiology studies.
