Laboratory of Human Nutrition and Epidemiology
Laboratory of Human Nutrition and Epidemiology at Westlake University was founded by Dr Ju-Sheng Zheng in 2018 when he joined the Westlake as a Principal investigator.
The main focus of Zheng lab is to disentangle the relationship between diet, nutrition and aging-related chronic diseases in human cohort studies using cutting-edge multi-omics dataset, including, but not limited to, genomics, proteomics, lipidomics, metabolomics and gut microbiome.
Zheng lab is also dedicated to developing novel strategies for the development of personalized nutrition, integrating gut microbiome, machine learning methods and data collected from wearable devices.
Personalized nutrition: gene-diet interaction, host genetics-gut microbiome and diet interaction and their influence on health
Nutritional epidemiology: diet, nutritional biomarkers, and metabolic diseases
Birth cohorts: maternal diet and physical activity, infant feeding practice and childhood obesity and metabolic risk
