Nuclear receptors (NRs) are a family of key regulatory molecules in normal physiology and in human diseases. Dr. Chin-Yo Lin’s research has focused on the roles of NR family members, estrogen receptors and liver X receptors, in cancer. His current studies examine the functions of liver X receptors in pancreatic cancer and the effects and mechanisms of action of alcohol in modulating estrogen receptor functions and cancer cell proliferation in breast cancer.
