Objective and Significance:
Research Plan and Methodology:
We seek to understand the molecular payhway of integrin signaling in adhesion assembly, as well as adhesion disassembly. In particular, we will focus on the integrin-mediate signal transduction, such as FAK/Pyk2 in cancer invadosomes in matrix-force dependent manner. We will utilize high-resolution live-cell fluorescence microscopy and molecular biology approaches to investigate the spatio-temporal events associated with adhesion formation and turn over. Here are the selected research plans.
