Research Outline     

The aims of my recent studies are:
(1) To investigate the differences between metabolites in different body fluids in adult patients with COPD, asthma and bronchiectasis;
(2) To investigate the correlation between metabolomics profiling with disease severity and clinical outcomes in these patients. The metabolites in EBC were detected by GC/MS, while those in the plasma and urine were determined by NMR. Results from my studies may provide insights into local and systemic inflammation in airway diseases, and may also be useful in the development of pharmacometabolomics and personalized medicine in these patients.
