Ju-Sheng got his PhD degree in nutrition at Zhejiang University (Hangzhou, China). Within his PhD program, he received one year’s training in the Nutrition and Genomics Lab at Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University in the USA, where he worked on the project of gene-nutrient interaction on diabetes traits. He was also a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellow supported by the European Commission (2016-2018), and received postdoctoral training at the MRC Epidemiology Unit in the University of Cambridge, UK.

Ju-Sheng joined the School of Life Sciences at Westlake University as a Principal Investigator and group leader in September 2018 and has been leading the Laboratory of Human Nutrition and Epidemiology at Westlake University. He is also a visiting scientist affiliated with the MRC Epidemiology Unit at the University of Cambridge, and adjunct Professor at the Institute of Nutrition and Health, Qingdao University, China. 



The major interest of Ju-Sheng’ current research is:

1) Using multi-omics technique to investigate the etiology of aging-related disease, especially metabolic diseases, and examine the role of diet/nutrition in the healthy aging;

2) Personalized nutrition: interaction of human genetic variation, gut microbiome and diet on metabolic diseases;

3) Prenatal risk factors and early infant feeding practice with growth pattern and adiposity in Chinese children.
