Scientific Research Project

1.       Resveratrol regulates reactive astrocyte to improve anatomical and locomotor recovery after spinal cord injury. This proposal is designed to use Res to treat the reactive astrocytes to regulate the activation of STAT3/BMP2 pathway, which may further affect the proliferation and differentiation of OPCs. Hence, this proposal attempts to establish a mechanism with key factors involved in a pathway for SCI recovery. The ultimate goal of this proposal is to provide a strategy with sound hypothesis that will be experimentally proved through molecular biology approach. 

2.       The opposing effects of Retinoic Acid on cell growth in Medulloblastoma. This project is to study the Retinoid Acid sensitivity in different cells of Medulloblastoma. The aim is to indicate the mechanisms of RA insensitivity for Medulloblastoma treatment.
