Main projects: 

Oxysterols as regulators of cholesterol homeostasis

 Several components of naturally oxidized cholesterols were identified as potent regulators of cholesterol absorption and cholesterol metabolism. They were subsequently patented by the University of Western Ontario in . 

ERregulated gene expression in MCFAT and MCF cell lines.

A novel group of genes which were potentially regulated by estrogen receptor and inhibited by antiestrogens tamoxifen has been identified by cDNA microarray studies. The results were then confirmed by experiments using Affymetrix chip. 

Breast cancer biomarkers

A phagedisplay based approach has been employed to screen potential immunereactive predictive biomakers for early stage breast cancer. Several potential biomarkers have been recognized.

The project involved preparation of specific phage libraries, biopanning against cancer patient sera, printing of phagearrays, immunological assay and complex statistical analysis. 

Professional Accomplishments:

Significant contribution to the patent issued in the name of the University of Western Ontario in .

Contribution to the patent serumbased biomarkers for breast cancer issued for the Wayne State University in .

Development of new original methods of separation and purification of oxysterols TLC, column chromatography.
