Ju-Sheng got his PhD degree in nutrition at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China (2009-2014). 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 (2012). He was also a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellow supported by the European Commission and a postdoctoral researcher at the MRC Epidemiology Unit, University of Cambridge, UK (2015-2018).

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 an adjunct Professor at Qingdao University and Ningbo University, China.

The major interest of Ju-Sheng’ current research:

1)Use multi-omics techniques (including nutrition biomarkers, genomics, metabolomics, microbiome and proteomics) to investigate the etiology of aging-related diseases, especially metabolic diseases, and examine the role of diet/nutrition for healthy aging.

2)Precision nutrition: using novel study design (n-of-1 clinical trial) or cutting-edge wearable device (such as continuous glucose monitoring) to explore individual’ personalized response to diet and nutrition in the Chinese populations.

3)Explore the interplay among diet, genetics and gut microbiome on the host metabolism and offspring birth outcomes among pregnant women (especially gestational diabetes patients); and investigate the relationship of prenatal risk factors and early infant feeding practice with growth pattern and adiposity among Chinese children.
