We aim at developing diagnosis and treatment for metabolism-related neurological disorders by identifying new targets in regulation of metabolism in neurons and tissues using neurometabolomics approach by establishment of Neurometabolomics Research Center (NRC) at DGIST.
Research aimed at understanding the metabolic mechanisms of neural systems in metabolic diseases including obesity and diabetes
Focus on the metabolic regulation of the etiology of neurometabolic diseases like neurodegnerative disorders to develop the technology for early diagnosis of diseases
Observation of minute changes in metabolite levels using metabolome analysis for research applicable to therapeutic intervention for prevention and treatment of neurometabolic diseases
Basic research on molecular mechanisms underlying the comorbidity of metabolic diseases and the neurological disorders.
