Research Interest

I have a broad research interest in the metabolism of lipids, fatty liver related metabolic disorder, both basically and clinically. I also indulge in applying Traditional Chinese Medicine to various liver diseases, and try to explore the potential mechanism. My research has yielded insights into the alcoholic liver disease, Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and related metabolic syndrome. My research group has hosted 9 projects granted from the National Nature Science Foundation of China in the recent 5 years, and our experimental results have been published in various journals. I regularly present our discoveries at national and international conferences. Besides, I am an active teacher through mentoring postgraduate students in the laboratory and teaching undergraduate, postgraduate, and medical school students.
