Project title: Regulation of UV-induced senescence and cell death in skin fibroblasts and keratinocytes by Sox4

                                                                                                                                                     
 

I joined UBC after completion of my master’s degree in Genetics. At UBC, I joined Experimental Medicine PhD program, under supervision of Dr. Gang Li, to study the UV-response in skin cells and molecular biology of melanoma metastasis. My work, built upon my PhD thesis, will explore the role of a transcription factor called Sox4 in moderation of photo-aging upon UV-exposure and suppression of melanoma metastasis.
I joined CIHR-SRTC in 2009, shortly after starting my PhD program and have since enjoyed its vibrant research environment and first-class educational materials. I also served as Chief Scholar at CIHR-SRTC, contributing into various administrative processes and coordinating scholars-related activities.
