Aging & Related Diseases

  • Sirtuin-1 (SIRT1) as a therapeutic target for ageing-related diseases.
  • Drug development and evaluation in obesity-related cardio-metabolic diseases and cancer.
  • Applying "omics" approaches for biomarker discovery and developments.
  • Integrative study of the role of Toll-like receptors in metabolic diseases and their cardiovascular complications.
  • Study of immuno-metabolism with a focus on metabolic function of Toll-like receptor mediated by cell signalling events.
  • Gut microbiota in the evolutionary development of Toll-like receptor pathways.
  • Adipocyte fatty acid binding protein as therapeutic target for obesity-related diseases.
  • Identification of novel factors that regulate energy metabolism and have potential therapeutic effects on obesity and its related cardiometabolic complications.
