Research interests:
Formal training is in Molecular and Cellular Biology. Focused on signaling mechanism of skeletal muscle growth and fat deposition, alternative splicing mechanism of myofibril protein Titin, signaling mechanism of cardiac muscle regeneration using cutting-edge techniques such as next generation sequencing and high resolution mass spectrometry (MS)-based system biology approach, RNA binding motif 20 (RBM20) in striated muscle growth, development, regeneration and diseases, and further on the application of exon-skipping treatment in muscle growth and diseases.
