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.
