Research Description

Dr. Gu is now a fulltime associate professor in charge of scientific research. His main research interests are in four research areas:

1). The studying on the pathogenesis and therapeutic method of diabetes, obesity and other endocrine diseases.

Diabetes is an endocrine system disease characterized by elevated plasma glucose levels resulting from either a lack of insulin production or resistance to insulin. According to statistics, a relatively small proportion (10%) of patients suffering from diabetes mellitus has type I or insulin dependent diabetes. The majority of diabetes patients are type II diabetes whose main mechanism is insulin resistance. Obesity is a major public health concern worldwide that can increase the risk of type II diabetes. Our studies aim to intensive research type II diabetes from several pathways, such as endoplasmic reticulum stress, oxidative stress and so on, clearing the pathogenesis of diabetes, obesity and other endocrine diseases, and find therapeutic method of these diseases.
