Research Interests
Dr. Ju's major research interest is in the development of miRNA based therapeutics and biomarker in gastrointestinal cancer. The Ju laboratory studies the mechanisms of microRNAs in cancer stem cell resistance, epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT), autophagy, and apoptosis. His group made initial discovery of the regulatory relationship between p53 tumor suppressor and microRNA. Dr. Ju and his group discovered the superior stability of microRNA in archival formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) clinical specimens which serves as the foundation of microRNA based biomarker discovery.
