Modeling Pathways of Early Growth Dysregulation at the GEJ – Grant #5 R01 DK135562

  • Principal Investigator: Stephen J Meltzer, Ph.D. and Dechen Lin, Ph.D.
  • Sponsor: National Institutes of Health
  • Period: 05/01/2024 – 02/28/2029
  • Goal: The application will test the hypothesis that dysregulated Platelet Activating Factor (PTAF) and free fatty-acid (FFA) metabolism, via a novel epigenetic crosstalk featuring aberrant HNF4A transcription factor activation, is involved in growth dysregulation and early neoplastic evolution in cardia columnar cells at the human gastroesophageal junction (GEJ-cardia).

Pharmacological and dietary inhibition of a novel metabolic-epigenetic crosstalk in head and neck cancer – Grant #5 R01 CA033648

  • Principal Investigator: Dechen Lin, Ph.D.
  • Sponsor: National Institutes of Health
  • Period: 03/01/2024 – 01/31/2029
  • Goal: Head neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is common and aggressive cancer without effective therapy. In this proposal, we will: i) focus on the crosstalk between cancer metabolism and epigenetic regulation to study the primary forces transforming normal oral cells into HNSCC using advanced organoid technology and mouse models; ii) investigate the pharmacological and dietary inhibition of the link between methionine metabolism and epigenetic network.

  • Principal Investigator: Dechen Lin, Ph.D.
  • Sponsor: Ming Hsieh Institute Research Award
  • Period: 08/01/2023 – 08/31/2024
  • Goal: The major goal of this project is to develop MLL3 mutations as biomarkers to predict immunotherapeutic response in patients with head and neck squamous cancer using both animal models and patient-derived tumor organoids.

Master regulator transcription factors promote esophageal neoplastic evolution – Grant #5 R37 CA237022

  • Principal Investigator: Dechen Lin, Ph.D.
  • Sponsor: National Institutes of Health
  • Period: 06/01/2020-05/31/2025
  • Goal: To establish primary driving forces of BE-associated neoplasia evolution and uncover epigenomic mechanisms underlying esophagus transformation, which will fundamentally transform our insights into the biology of esophageal cancer.

Window pre-operative study of FID-007 in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck

  • Sponsor: Ming Hsieh Institute Research Award
  • Period: 08/01/2023 – 08/31/2024
  • Goal: The major goal of this project is to 1) conduct a clinical trial evaluating the combination of Taxane-based drugs and ICB therapies in HNSCC patients; 2) study the immune-modulating function of Taxane-based drugs using single-cell RNA-seq and patient-derived tumor organoids.

A central regulator and predictive biomarker for head neck cancer immunotherapy

  • Principal Investigator: Uttum Sinha MD, Dechen Lin, Ph.D.
  • Sponsor: The Wright Foundation
  • Period: 08/01/2023 – 07/31/2024
  • Goal: The major goal of this project is to perform single-cell RNA-seq analyses of HNSCC tumor microenvironment to understand the role on STAT1-IFN pathway in anti-tumor immune regulation and to develop biomarkers using multiplexed immunofluorescence of HNSCC tumor samples.
