Jiahuai Hanú║
Dr. Jiahuai Han is known for the discovery of the p38 signaling pathway, one of the most important pathways in intracellular signaling transduction. This pathway plays important roles in many biological processes including cell cycle regulation, cell proliferation, cell differentiation and senescence, as well as immune reactions, development and tumorigenesis. Another current focus of Han`s lab is molecular mechanisms of RIP3 dependent necrosis, which is based on a recent finding in this laboratory revealing that RIP3 is a major player in controlling programmed necrosis.

The research in Haní»s Lab will lead to a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of inflammation, cardiovascular disease and tumorigenesis, and thus provides new ideas for the development of therapeutic intervention for these diseases...(More)

Our research interests are the molecular mechanisms in stress responses including inflammation and inflammation related diseases.(More)
