Academic & Research Profile

The objective of the Fu laboratory is to better understand the molecular mechanisms underlying ovarian tumorigenesis, with a particular interest in the role of Notch signaling pathway in ovarian cancer development and progression.

Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths in women and the leading cause of gynecologic cancer-related death. The high mortality is due to the lack of effective methods for early detection of ovarian cancer. Despite advances in surgical techniques and chemotherapy regimens, relapse will occur in patients with advanced ovarian cancer. Patients become less responsive to chemotherapy with each subsequent relapse due to the development of drug resistance. Thus there is an urgent need to understand the molecular pathogenesis for this heterogeneous disease and to identify potential signaling pathways as therapeutic targets.
