My research has focused on the mechanism of genome stability maintenance, especially the molecular biology mechanism of DNA repair such as mismatch repair and hairpin repair, and also disease related to genome instability. I am best known for my research on characterization of mismatch recognition and for defining BRCA1 as a new Fanconi anemia gene. Currently, I'm also working on the mechanism of ubiquitinating and deubuquitinating regulation of DNA repair and inflammation signaling.
