Research Interests

My main research interest is bio-dynamics, i.e., elucidating how molecular machineries organized as pathways/networks act dynamically within and between interacting cell types to control physiological and pathological responses in complex cellular environments. My research is at the unique juncture of biophysics, cell biology, cancer pharmacology and immunology, integrating advanced cross-disciplinary insight, research methodologies and quantitative analysis to decipher dynamic control underlying anticancer drug response and immuno-oncology. My work has developed quantitative approaches that combine live-cell imaging with mathematical modelling of pathway/network dynamics to unravel the context-specific pathway control at the system level, and uncovered novel chemoresistance mechanism and new combinatorial drug targets towards development of more effective cancer treatment strategies. More recently, my research centers on the exciting frontiers of immuno-oncology, with a particular interest in understanding the rate-limiting kinetics underlying the interactions between tumor and key innate immune cells, such as Natural Killer cells and monocytes/macrophages, as well as the spatiotemporal regulations of these interactions in the three-dimensional (3D) tumor microenvironment.
