8、目前主要科学研究领域和兴趣
     研究遗传变异所导致的造血干细胞的恶性转化为白血病的发病机制,探索和鉴定全新的分子治疗靶标和靶向治疗策略。前期利用MLL染色体易位所导致的混合系白血病为疾病模型,取得了以下主要成果:(1)发现了炎性信号通路介导野生型MLL泛素化降解的分子机制,揭示了稳定野生型MLL可以靶向混合系白血病中MLL融合蛋白和SEC的转录依赖,提出了稳定野生型MLL蛋白作为治疗混合系白血病的新策略(Cell, 2017);(2)首次研发了SEC抑制剂KL-1和KL-2, 发现它们抑制SEC介导的转录延伸和转录成瘾,是肿瘤转录成瘾的全新靶向治疗药物(Cell,2018);(3)系统研究了转录辅助因子和激酶参与转录调控的具体机制以及其异常在白血病和肿瘤中的功能(Molecular Cell, 2015; MCB, 2015; Genes Dev,2012 & 2017; Cancer Cell,2018)。

课题组研究方向包括:1. 遗传变异和表观遗传变异所导致的血液肿瘤的发病机制和靶向治疗;2. 肿瘤中的转录成瘾机制和新靶标鉴定; 3.基于转录成瘾机制的小分子靶向药物开发。
