Jun-Yang Liou has his expertise in molecular signaling in regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. His research interests focus on these areas: (1) Role of 14-3-3 proteins, focal adhesion kinase and their associated downstream targets in cancer cell survival, proliferation, migration as well as tumor progression and metastasis. (2) Molecular mechanisms and signal pathways of 14-3-3 and Rho-ROCK in regulating mouse embryonic stem cell differentiation and proliferation. He has identified that inhibition of ROCK signaling contribute to neural and cardiac differentiation of mouse embryonic stem and induced pluripotent stem cells.
