Projects for Regular Students in Doctoral or Master’s Programs

1) Molecular mechanisms of TGF-β related molecules (TMEPAI, MafK etc.) in colonic stem cells maintenance and carcinogenesis using gene-manipulated mice and three dimensional histopathological analysis.

2) Molecular mechanisms of TGF-β related molecules (THG1 etc.) in squamous cell carcinoma formation.

Study Programs for Short Stay Students (one week ~ one trimester)

1) Pathological tissue preparation, Immunohistochemistry and 3D reconstruction

2) In vitro tumorigenic assays (cell proliferation, sphere forming assay, scratch assay, matrigel invasion assay, 3D culture invasion assay etc.)
