1992 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
His primary areas of study are Keratin, Cell biology, Pathology, Molecular biology and Stem cell. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cellular differentiation, Keratin 6A, Intermediate filament, Monoclonal antibody and Epidermis. His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Cell division, Immunology, Anatomy and Keratinocyte.
His Pathology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Urothelium, Uroplakins and Transdifferentiation. His Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as Immunofluorescence and Antibody. His Stem cell research integrates issues from Corneal epithelium, Cell cycle and Amniotic epithelial cells.
Tung-Tien Sun focuses on Cell biology, Pathology, Keratin, Molecular biology and Uroplakins. His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cell culture, Cellular differentiation and Immunology. His Pathology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Carcinogenesis and Bladder cancer.
The various areas that he examines in his Keratin study include Epithelium, Staining, Keratin 6A, Monoclonal antibody and Epidermis. Tung-Tien Sun combines subjects such as Biochemistry, Gene expression, Gene and Keratinocyte with his study of Molecular biology. In his research on the topic of Uroplakins, Peptide sequence is strongly related with Uroplakin II.
Tung-Tien Sun mainly focuses on Cell biology, Urothelium, Uroplakins, Pathology and Cancer research. His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Membrane protein, Gene expression and Cellular differentiation. Cellular differentiation is closely attributed to Stem cell in his study.
His Urothelium research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Molecular biology, Signal transduction and Cystometry. In general Molecular biology, his work in Membrane glycoproteins is often linked to Direct evidence linking many areas of study. The Pathology study combines topics in areas such as Suppressor, Extracellular matrix, Cornea and Tumor progression.
Tung-Tien Sun mostly deals with Urothelium, Cell biology, Pathology, Signal transduction and Cancer research. His work carried out in the field of Urothelium brings together such families of science as Carcinogenesis and Protein kinase B. His Cell biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Paracrine signalling and Cellular differentiation.
Within one scientific family, Tung-Tien Sun focuses on topics pertaining to Keratin under Cellular differentiation, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Physiology. He has included themes like Bladder cancer, Tumor progression and Cornea, Bowman Membrane in his Pathology study. Tung-Tien Sun works mostly in the field of Uroplakins, limiting it down to concerns involving Regeneration and, occasionally, Immunology.
