Dr. Liu has been the Director and Principle Investigator of his cancer research laboratory since he became Assistant Professor (tenure-track) at Penn State University in 2006. He was Associate Professor and Principle Investigator at Washington State University from 2013-2019. Dr. Liu's laboratory identified important mechanisms by which neurons and cancer cells regulate cell survival (Liu and Greene Neuron 2001; Liu et al., GenesDev 2005; Liu et al., MCB 2011; Madarampalli Cell 2015; Yuan et al., JBC 2018). Dr. Liu's research has been supported by grants from National Institute of Health, US Department of Defense, and American Cancer Society.
