RESEARCH FOCUS

Environment and Global Health. To focus on the short-term and long-term association between outdoor air pollutants (PM2.5, PM10, CO, O3, NO2 and SO2, etc) and cardiovascular diseases and respiratory diseases.

Cancer Molecular Epidemiology. To explore the genetic and environmental risk factors of susceptibility of cancers. Mainly focus on the association between susceptibility of colorectal cancer and SNP sites of GH-IGF family and MiRNA related genes.
