团队人员

1.  研究组长:闫东升,博士,研究员。1993年至 1998年在白求恩医科大学临床医学系完成本科学习,之后赴吉林大学生化与分子生物学系开始硕士学习,2001年至2006年中科院遗传与发育生物学研究所攻读博士。2006年加入温州医科大学组建实验室。

2.  团队成员:陈晓燕、陈伟伟、王教、王丽花、曹琼洁、林永、叶菊秀

研究方向

 本课题组的研究兴趣是眼发育和疾病过程中的表观遗传机制。表观遗传学已成为当前的研究热点,对眼部疾病的表观遗传机制研究将为其治疗提供新的策略,特别是对于目前尚缺乏有效治疗手段的致盲性眼部疾病,阐明其分子机制极为重要。表观遗传调控包括DNA甲基化,组蛋白修饰和非编码RNA。表观遗传修饰广泛见于各种生理和病理过程,阐明这些修饰在眼部疾病中的改变与功能具有极为重要的意义。目前,我们重点研究非编码RNA在葡萄膜黑色素瘤以及糖尿病视网膜病变等眼部疾病中的功能与分子机制,研究成果将为这些疾病的治疗提供新的思路。

Scope of Research Proposal

  Dr. Dongsheng Yan's laboratory is interested in studying epigenetic mechanism in eye development and disease. Epigenetics is a topic of heightening interest in ophthalmology because of its translational potential to develop novel strategies for improving treatment of anterior and posterior segment ocular diseases. This approach is of critical importance because currently in many cases the approaches in vogue only provide palliative relief without affecting the underlying mechanisms of sight compromising pathology. Epigenetic regulation entails DNA methylation, histone modifications and non-coding RNAs. As epigenetic modifications are implicated in an ever increasing number of physiological and pathological processes, there is a burgeoning interest to identify associations between aberrant changes and dysfunctional responses underlying different ocular diseases. Specially, it is of great interest to us to realize the specific associations between non-coding RNAs and their numerous targets that are perturbed in blinding eye diseases such as uveal melanoma and diabetic retinopathy. Such insights will be helpful for developing novel strategies in order to establish effective treatments of ocular diseases and thereby reverse losses in visual acuity.
