Research Interest I am interested in studying the putative therapeutic effects of type I IFN on treating human endometrial cancers. Past studies have suggested that type I IFN, such as IFN-a and IFN-b, in combination with anti-estrogens might hold greater promise for treating estrogen-responsive tumors. The underlying mechanism might be that they up-regulate ER, and
