Dr. Tao Huan’s research program focuses on developing analytical and bioinformatic tools for MS-based metabolomics with a focus on understanding colorectal cancer (CRC) metabolism and seeking its relationship with gut microbiome, environmental exposures, and therapeutics. His long-term research goal is to drive metabolomics forward and bring it into the toolbox of biological scientists to achieve a more comprehensive understanding of human health and disease. He is also interested in the integration of metabolomics with other ‘omics’ (epigenomics, genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics) data for systems-level interrogation of biological problems as well as the application of state-of-art metabolomics technologies in various biological challenges, such as mechanistic understanding of cancer metabolism and disease biomarker discovery

Research interests: metabolomics, bioinformatics, cancer, mass spectrometry, biomarker discovery
