Research Interest: Cell Reprogramming and Induced Pluripotent Stem
Cells, Stem Cells and Neural Tissue Engineering, Mammalian Inner Ear
Development and Hair Cell Regeneration.
Two Major Projects are Currently Underway in the Laboratory.
A Cell Reprogramming Technique Has Been Used to Convert Heterogeneous Malignant Breast Cancer Cells into Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Using Sox2/Oct4/Nanog Proteins. Dr. Wu’s Laboratory is Clarifying these Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells for their Differentiation Potential and Oncogenic Properties, and Try to Develop a Novel Cell Converting Therapy for Malignant Breast Cancer Treatment.
Metastasis, the Spread of Cancer Cells from the Primary Tumor To Distant Organs, Is The Most Dreadful Development Of Breast Cancer, As Well As Other Neoplastic Diseases. Although Metastasis Contributes To Over 90% Of Human Cancer Mortality, The Molecular Mechanism Of This Process Remains Largely Unknown. Dr. Wu’s Laboratory Is In The Process Of Identifying Molecular Signatures Involved In Breast Cancer Metastasis Using Integrative Genetic, Epigenetic And Proteomic Approach, As Well As Animal Models And Clinical Specimens.

RESEARCH INTERESTS AND SKILLS
My scientific interests are to understand how genetic and molecular programs can yield the complex biological behaviors. As a medical research scientist, synthetic biologist and bioengineer, I am passionate about the applications of diverse biotechnological tools to understand genomics and explore the mechanism of genomic control as well as incidence of diseases, which allow comprehensive understanding, manipulating, and engineering of sophisticated biological systems. I aim to understand cellular or organismal behaviors in both space and time thus benefit the biomedical research, translational studies and cell therapy.
I am skilled in cell culture (primary/linage) and cellularity detections (CCK8, FACS etc); molecular cloning and detection (plasmid construction, RT-PCR, western blot etc); protein [removed]prokaryotic expression system) and purification (ionexchange and affinity chromatography); immunohistochemistry and immunocytochemistry detection; and animal model construction.

Existing evidence indicates that PPI (protein-protein interaction) contributes to the tumorigenesis of endometrial carcinoma, but the mechanisms involved in it remain largely unknown. In our previous study, we found that ATF3 participating in the development of various different kinds of cancer, expressed higher in the epithelium of normal endometrial tissue than that detected in pathnological tissue, and interacted with JunB which expressing higher in the epithelium of endometrial cancer tissue than that detected in normal endometrial tissue, via yeast-two-hybrid assay. Additionally, over-expression of ATF3 led to the inhibition of cell proliferation, migration and invasion, with the down-regulation of JunB and inflammatory factor. Therefore, we put forward a hypothesis that ATF3 might inhibit the expression of inflammatory genes and the development of endometrial cancer by binding with JunB andmitigating with it. This study was designed to utilize the mRNA expression microarray analysis, CRISPR/Cas9 and orthotopic endometrial carcinoma model in nude mice combined with molecular biological techniques to explore the cell signal transductions of ATF3 and JunB in EC, demonstrate the mechanism of development of EC, and provide new therapeutic targets for it, which contributes greatly to the patients suffering from endometrial cancer.
