Descriptor of Research

My research related to diabetes/metabolism study focuses mainly on the lipid analysis including lipid quantitation and structural characterization applying various mass spectrometric techniques, which are among the most sensitive and specific method for lipid detection. The role of the mass spectrometry facility where I am responsible for the daily operation, play in the diabetes/metabolism research is supporting PIs who are interested in, e.g.,lipogenesis study that requires sensitive and accurate method for lipid and/or carbohydrate analysis. The facility also provides consultation in the sample preparation and isolation for various studies from a wide range of biological specimens, and develop methods for new studies as requested by researchers inside and outside the university.
