Research summary

Research outline

Our research aims at understanding the molecular mechanism of homeostasis maintaining, especially focuses on dietary/nutritional function, endocrine metabolism, and cancer. Based on this research, we aim to provide valuable insight into the development of functional foods, supplements, and medicinal drugs.

Main themes

  • Dietary signaling via nutrient-sensing receptors and metabolic syndrome
  • Non-genomic effects via sex steroid hormone receptors and neurological disorders
