Lin Shi’s research focus on the comprehensive analysis of metabolites and proteins in biological samples from humans, aiming to improve the understanding of the biological, environmental and nutritional factors on health and disease.
• Bioinformatics tools for data processing and analysis: To develop and optimize bioinformatics tools and statistical strategies to overcome practical data analysis challenges arising from large-scale “omics” studies.
• Biomarkers of type 2 diabetes: To identify biomarkers associated with risk of developing type 2 diabetes using metabolomics or proteomics in population studies, aiming to provide useful information related to disease pathophysiology and progression, and to improve disease risk prediction.
• Role of diet in type 2 diabetes: To identify biomarkers of specific food items and dietary patterns using metabolomics or proteomics in population studies, and to investigate to what extent diet could affect the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
