Research Interest

 My research focus is about the: 

  • Role and mechanism of antioxidant therapy in type II diabetes and diabetic nephropathy
  • Role of the insulin and IGF-modified growth regulator, preoptic regulatory factor-2 (PORF-2), which is a Rho-GAP domain-containing protein, in diabetic nephropathy
  • Function of PORF-2; signaling pathways upstream and downstream of PORF-2
