The primary work of cellular biology laboratory emphasized on observing and analyzing various kinds of cells including cancer cells, stem cells, and neurons in different physiologic or pathological conditions that involve intracellular gene regulation, expression and the change of molecular network system. In the past, we study newborn rat inflammation induced by pain stimulation and the associated changes in neural signal pathway of spinal cord and the related genetic changes. In the process of study, we construct high-through put laboratory technique and platform, and utilizing these techniques, we also developed many clinical diagnostic technique. Recently, we spent abundant resources primarily in connection with the study of system biology of cancer and stem cells, constructing the cultured technique of cancer cell and stem cell, especially in embryonic stem cell line of mouse and induced pluripotent stem human cell lines.
