Research Interests: A major research focus of Prof. Wu’s laboratory is to study the molecular mechanism of PTEN controlled tumorigenesis and signaling pathways. By generating tissue-specific PTEN deficient animal models, Prof. Wu's lab was the first to demonstrate the role of PTEN tumor suppressor in regulating stem cell G0-G1 cell cycle entry, self-renewal, proliferation, survival and in the formation of “cancer stem cell”. These models have been used for investigating the cross-talks between the PI3K pathway and other signaling pathways in tumorigenesis and serve as valuable tools for new drug development for human cancers.
