Research description:

Human biochemical and molecular genetics, specifically lysosomal storage diseases.
Functional genomics and proteomics, enzymology and molecular evolution.

Health related research:

My research focuses on human biochemical and molecular genetics, specifically lysosomal storage disease resulting from inherited deficiency of lysosomal enzymes. Our research will generate data that are important in the prognosis, prevention and treatment of these diseases.

International research:

I am collaborating with colleagues at the Peking (Beijing) Union Medical College to study the biochemical and molecular basis of lysosomal storage diseases, inclulding Gaucher disease.
