Descriptor of Research

The research in our group is to understand molecular mechanisms mediating insulin signaling and lipid metabolism in metabolic diseases. We employ a variety of techniques including mass spectrometry-based lipidomic analysis, molecular biological approaches, cell culture-based systems, and multiple transgenic mouse models. Implication of our findings in human health is also explored. We currently have two major research directions: 1)Fatty acid 2-hydroxylase and regulation of lipid metabolism; 2) CD36 ubiquitination and lipid metabolism.
