Metabolomics: By employing state-of-the-art mass spectrometry and stable isotope (13C, 15N, 2H) atoms in the tracer molecules, we analyze the specific metabolic pathways. Based on mass isotopologue distribution, we will establish mathematical modeling to delineate the activity and dynamic changes of metabolic pathways for metabolic flux analysis in in vivo and vitro. In vivo, we mainly focus on metabolic cross-talks between tissues and circulation system; in vitro, we mainly focus on metabolic communications between immune cells and other types of cells as well as metabolic shuttling at subcellular level, such as malate-aspartate shuttle, citrate-pyruvate shuttle and glycerophosphate shuttle.
Cellular metabolism: In the past decades, the impacts of microenvironment on cancer metabolism are largely overlooked. By applying metabolic flux analysis in vivo, in combination with biochemistry and genetics, we will quantitatively explain the impact of environmental factors on metabolic reprogramming in tumors. In particular, we are developing novel mass spectrometric technologies and collaborating with oncologists and immunologists for a better understanding of precision modulation of immunometabolism within the tumor microenvironment. We are also interested in the research fields ranging from distribution of nutrient utilization and energy expenditure in metabolic biology to metabolomics of clinical cohorts in precision medicine.
