Objective

Revealing various signaling pathways in metabolism of oxygen, glucose, lipids, proteins and other nutrients is crucial for better understanding of human physiology and diseases. Deeper mechanistic insights into complex signaling networks in various metabolic pathways will advance our knowledge of human metabolism and its role in homeostasis and disease pathogenesis. Application of multi-omics and advanced molecular technologies has in recent years uncovered a large number of signaling molecules with potential values for early detection, prevention and therapeutic intervention of human chronic diseases including cancer, cardio-metabolic disorder and neurodegeneration.
