    BioMy research focuses on liver diseases. I got my Ph.D. degree in virology and immune response at Institut Pasteur of Shanghai, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The two main projects during my Ph.D. program are: 1) explore the relationship between the immune response in Hepatitis C virus infection and Interferon treatment; and 2) investigate the function of ECM1 in liver fibrosis. As a postdoc in Stanford, I will try to integrate basic and translational liver research and focus on: 1) investigate molecular functions of liver immune cells in liver disease; 2) explore key factors determining the change of liver microenvironment that cause liver diseases; 3) use new techniques, such as next-generation sequencing, RNAseq or signal cell sequencing, to explore key factors affecting liver disease and treatment in patients.

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI currently explore the application of vibrational spectroscopic technologies for biomedical imaging and precision medicine for clinical use. My research interests are directly related to chemical imaging technology development, which include but are not limited to spectral and image processing and analysis, machine learning applications, autonomous adaptive data acquisition, and vibrational spectroscopic applications to the biomedical sciences.

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsAs a postdoctoral scholar, I am studying the gut ecosystem, gut functionality nad neuroimmune interactions during aging and age-associated diseases like AD, and the role of fermented food in modulating gut health. I expect to be able to show that dietary modifications can help with healthy aging and to contribute to possibly leveraging dietary interventions therapeutically in age-associated diseases.



    Postdoctoral Scholar, Gastroenterology

    BioTzu-Han Lo, a researcher at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences at Academia Sinica, has made contributions to the field of macrophage biology. His work has particularly focused on inflammation, especially in the context of fibrotic response. One of his works includes a study on the regulation of macrophage polarization in ureteral obstruction. This research has illuminated the role of inflammatory cell infiltration and activation during the early stages of kidney injury, a common pathological feature of chronic kidney disease.

    In addition to his work on macrophage biology, Tzu-Han Lo has also delved into research related to galectins, a family of β-galactoside–binding proteins. His work in this area has centered on the role of galectins in recognizing microbial glycans, particularly lipopolysaccharides (LPSs). He has explored their impact on host defense mechanisms, including autophagy and both canonical and non-canonical inflammasome signaling pathways.

    His research has offered insights into the complex interactions between host immunity and microbial components. This has contributed to our understanding of inflammatory responses and their implications for human health.

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Gastroenterology

    BioDr. Minh Nguyen joined the Prof. Jeffrey Glenn laboratory as a postdoctoral scholar in August 2022. In collaboration with Safaran ChEM-H Medicinal Chemistry Knowledge Center, his research objective is to harness the power of organic synthesis toward the development of novel antiviral therapies. Minh obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania under the direction of Prof. Amos B. Smith, III, where his doctoral work centered on the convergent total synthesis of two marine natural products nahuoic acids Cii and Dii.
