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 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 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.
