Eun Hyun Ahn PhD



Bio


Dr. Ahn’s current research interests are focused on: Breast cancer stem cell mutagenesis and DNA repair and microenvironmental regulation of cancer stem cells and carcinogenesis. Dr.Ahn’s previous research areas include: (1) Identification and biochemical characterization of target genes of PAX3-FOXO1 in alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma; (2) Regulation of differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells and cardiac precursor cells by nanotopography-induced cellular stiffness and rigidity; (3) Roles of retinoic acids and retinoic acid receptorson proliferation, cell cycle, and cell signaling; (4) chemotherapeutic and chemopreventive mechanisms of sphingolipids in colon and breast cancers; Anti-tumorigenic activities of antisense oligonucleotides against AKT1 in various cancer cells.
