Laboratory of Human Nutrition and Epidemiology
Care about Nutrition and Human Health
Laboratory of Human Nutrition and Epidemiology (and hereinafter referred to as Zheng Lab) at Westlake University was founded by Dr. Ju-Sheng Zheng in 2018 when he joined the Westlake University as a Principal investigator.
The main focus of the Zheng Lab is to disentangle the relationship between diet, nutrition and aging-related chronic diseases in human cohort studies using the cutting-edge multi-omics dataset, including, but not limited to, genomics, proteomics, lipidomics, metabolomics, and gut microbiome.
Zheng Lab is also dedicated to developing novel strategies for integrating gut microbiome, machine learning methods and data collected from wearable devices into personalized nutrition.
Multi-omics analyses reveal relationships among dairy consumption, gut microbiota and cardiometabolic health
