The Lab

We are a group of investigators using integrative approaches to study barrier biology and microbiome in inflammation and its associated diseases from molecules to the whole organisms.

We are trying to combine a multi-omics (single-cell and bulk transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, culturomics and microbiome/metagenome) strategy and complementary in vitro and in vivo mechanistic approaches to understand the roles of gut microbiota and barrier integrity play in various inflammatory diseases such as obesity/metabolic disorders and colitis and hope then to design new therapeutic strategies to manages these diseases.

Let’s take the next step and work together
