Cancer happens through accumulation of genetic mutations and epigenetic alternations in normal cells. Characterizing key genes and associated regulatory networks underlying cell transformation is fundamentally important to develop novel cancer therapeutic strategies. First, I will present my study reconstructing gene transcriptional regulatory circuits mediating tumor-promoting inflammation. Second, I will talk about basic principles of RNA translation in mammalian cells and translational regulation during oncogenic processes.
