Dr.Deng,xiyun received M.S.and Ph.D. degree from Cancer Research Institute, Xiangya Medical College (now part of Central South University) in Pathophysiology/Cancer Biology in 1994 and 2006.I completed my postdoctoral training at Wayne State University and Ohio State University between 2001 and 2005 and became a faculty member of the Translational Research Center at the University of Texas Health Science Center-Houston in 2010. I joined Hunan Normal University Medical College in 2012 and am currently full professor and Chair of the Department of Basic Medical Sciences.
Research interests:focus on the molecular mechanisms of cancer metastasis and the experimental therapeutics targeting cancer stem cells. I am one of the originators of the new discovery that post-translational modifications of non-histone proteins play a critical role in cancer metastasis and drug-induced cellular stress. I have been the recipient of 3 research grants from the Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and multiple grants from other funding agencies.
