    Collapse Overview
    I am a basic biomedical researcher. I received my Ph.D. degree in biochemistry and molecular biology and postdoctoral training in muscle physiology. As an Assistant professor at the Department of Medicine, UCSD, I lead a team conducting basic research in the lab. We study mitochondrial and energy metabolic functions in the heart and skeletal muscle. The metabolic abnormality often causes human diseases (ex. heart failure and skeletal muscle disorder). Currently, we are exploring how energy metabolism affects the heart and skeletal muscle function using newly generated genetically modified mouse models and cultured heart and skeletal muscle cells. We also employ molecular biology, biochemistry, and physiological approaches for the search.
    Previously, we have identified a novel mitochondrial regulator, Perm1. We have published a series of studies showing the role of Perm1 in the heart and skeletal muscle metabolic function. Currently, we are studying the role of Perm1 in multiple disease settings and the role of other metabolic regulators in the heart and skeletal muscle.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
