Research in the Jiang lab focuses on three intertwined directions highly relevant to human disease: (1) the molecular basis of programmed cell death, including apoptosis and a newly defined death mode known as ferroptosis; (2) the molecular basis of autophagy; and (3) regulation of the tumor suppressor PTEN, which is also a modulator for both cell death and autophagy. We also aim to translate our basic research finding into potential therapeutic approaches. The laboratory utilizes a combination of approaches including biochemistry, chemical biology, proteomics, molecular cell biology, high-throughput screening, three-dimensional microfluidic cell array, and mouse modeling.
