       Our lab focuses on research in the elderly. Currently, we have projects on cognitive function, dementia and osteoporosis in Taiwanese elders (supported by Ministry of science and Technology and international) and international collaborative projects on prostate cancer. Our lab includes clinicians, graduate and undergraduate students. We also have extensive collaboration with clinicians of different specialties (geriatrics, neurology, gastroenterology, ophthalmology and cardiology) and experts from multidisplines (biostatistics, nutrition, metablome, and spatiotemporal environment). The goals of our lab is to
  1. Identify clinical, genomic and environmental factors for predicting specific outcomes (dementia, cognitive impairment, osteoporosis, prostate cancer) at an early stage.
  2. Preventing these health outcomes via early intervention.
  3. Arouse the attention on research in the elderly.
For those who are interested in our research, welcome to join us!
