My laboratory’s primary focus is the prevention of metabolic syndrome using nutraceuticals and the explanation of their pathophysiology. An extensive effort in the laboratory is to understand the function of nutrient-sensing genes and how the nutraceuticals rescue the disease phenotypes using a mouse, a rat, and cell-lines.

Nutraceuticals Evaluation

Evaluate nutraceuticals in vivo and in vitro to prevent and/or rescue metabolic syndrome, including obesity, type II diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, and cardiovascular disease


Multi-omics analysis (transcriptomes, metabolomics, metagenomes, and epigenomes) to identify the candidate signaling pathway

Cell Signaling Pathways

Identify/rescue pathophysiological cell signaling pathway using state-of-art molecular biology skills, including knock-down and overexpression
