Approved Research

Multi-omics Study of Non-communicable Disease and Their Interaction with Environmental Factors

Principal Investigator: Dr Zhengbao Zhu
Approved Research ID: 91185
Approval date: September 8th 2022

Lay summary

Noncommunicable diseases are the result of a combination of genetic, physiological, environmental, and behavioral factors, but their etiology remains limited. In the next three years, we will interrogate genomics data, metabolomics data, and environmental factors to better illustrate the molecular mechanism underlying these noncommunicable diseases. Findings from our study could help identify individuals at high risk for active monitoring and intervention. In addition, our findings could provide epidemiological evidence for the novel drug targets of noncommunicable diseases.
