Ji, Jun-Yuan Associate Professor


Our laboratory is interested in cell cycle and transcriptional regulation during development and tumorigenesis. Using Drosophila and cultured human cancer cell lines as model systems, we combine genetic, cell biological, and biochemical approaches to elucidate the molecular and genetic regulatory circuits that control cell proliferation and gene expression. Specifically, our major focus is to study the functions and regulation of Cyclin-dependent kinase 8 (CDK8).
