Research Achievements
* Discovery, cloning and identification of the following novel cancer-related genes:
     - The novel apoptotic BCL2L12 gene
     - The new carcinoembryonic antigen gene CEAL1 (CEACAM19)
     - The SR-A1 gene (SCAF1)
     - TSKS, AP2A1 etc
* Characterization and study of the kallikrein gene family members KLK7, KLK11, KLK15
