Research Interests
I am interested in crosstalks between oncogenic signaling pathways, such as NF-kB, Wnt/b-catenin, and so on. Recent studies on the individual pathway have contributed to unveil the hidden mechanisms under tumorigenesis, yet the exact mechanism remains unclear. As a possible solution for this problem, I expect that the regulations mediated by the crosstalk have a key role in tumorigenesis. Especially, I am now focusing on the contradictory roles of NF-kB in tumorigenesis.

Research Interests
Scientist, philosopher and writer who elucidates the mystery of brain; this is my future self. I have been dreaming of establish the consilience of macroscopic view and microscopic view in neuroscience. Underlying principle suppose to be in the place, where top-down and bottom-up approaches meet. Emergent property & complex network science may penetrate the levels of hierarchy and furnish the multi-scale insights to 'What is Interlligence? How it emerges? and Why?
