About the Editor
Dr. Bolin Liu, Editor-in-Chief
Dr. Bolin Liu is Professor in the Departments of Interdisciplinary Oncology and Genetics and the Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center at School of Medicine, Louisiana State University (LSU) Health Sciences Center-New Orleans. He earned his MD from Beijing Medical University and received extensive postdoctoral training in cancer biology at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Dr. Liu became an independent investigator in the Department of Pathology at University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in 2007. He was recruited to his current institution in 2018. Dr. Liu’s research interests focus on receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs)-initiated cell signaling in drug resistance and tumor metastasis, with a hope to identify novel molecular targets and develop epigenetic approaches for cancer treatment. Dr. Liu has published over 80 peer-reviewed articles in the field of cancer research, and received several honors and awards, including a Research Award from Susan G. Komen for the Cure (2007), an Elsa U. Pardee Foundation Award (2014), and a Translational Research Award from METAvivor Research and Support, Inc. (2020).
