Research Summary

Dr. Zou Hong is committed to tumor pathological diagnosis and molecular diagnosis, and discovered some new immunohistochemical antibody combinations in tumor differential diagnosis.

In addition, she and her team conducted research on the interaction mechanism between tumors and abnormal cholesterol metabolism, especially the regulation and molecular mechanism of HDL receptor SR-B1 gene on the proliferation and invasion of clear cell renal cell carcinoma.

Besides, her team has made progress in the development of nano-drugs to anti colon cancer proliferation and drug resistance.
