Dr. Pan's Lab - Calcium Signaling in Cancer and Other Diseases

Welcome to the Pan Lab!

Our research interest is focused on intracellular calcium signaling and its pathophysiological implications in human diseases. Ion Ca2+, the mighty signaler, regulates a wide range of downstream cellular processes, including gene transcription, cell proliferation, migration and death. Dysregulation in Ca2+ signaling has been linked to muscle, heart diseases, cancer and more.  We study the fine-tuned Ca2+ signaling network in various diseases with a multidisciplinary approach, including live cell imaging, ultrastructural analysis, molecular gene modulation, intracellular Ca2+ measurement and transgenic animal models.
