All Disease Begins In the Gut – Hippocrates
We investigate how dietary nutrient metabolism causes diseases.
We seek to find disease-associated metabolites that alter signal networks and genetic/epigenetic landscapes.
We use metabolomics, lipidomics, and stable isotope tracing in disease animal models and human patients.
We focus on metabolic disease, e.g., obesity, diabetes, alcoholic and non-alcoholic fatty liver, cardiovascular disease, and cancers.
