The general theme of research in Dr. Lin's lab is cell fate regulation in the human health and diseases with focus on the intersection of stem cells and cancer biology. The ongoing projects seek to understand what extent stem and progenitor cells become cancer-initiating cells. Thus, the lab's work has potential implications for basic stem cell and cancer biology as well as translational significance for treatment and prevention of diseases.
Approaches used in the lab include animal models, genome editing, single cell and large-scale imaging, and proteogenomics. These innovative technologies can be implemented in any well-functioning laboratory, and several aspects are ideally suited for independent research for undergraduate and graduate students. The interdisciplinary nature of research activities in Dr. Lin’s lab makes it an ideal program for research training at the interface of cancer research, neurobiology, stem cell biology, bioinformatics, and molecular biology.
