Research Focus

Committed to pursuing the issues of ‘why,’, ‘what’ and ‘how’ the normal and abnormal lipid metabolisms in neural (retina) and non-neural tissues (testis/sperm) function. These functionally different organs share a commonality with novel lipids, which are the codes that we are working to unravel.

Research Interests

- Prenatal nutrition and neurodevelopment
- Nutrition strategies on FASD
