Most of the research work in Dr. Qian's laboratory is broadly interdisciplinary, with a primary emphasis on the nutrient signaling pathway, stress response, protein synthesis, and their implications in human diseases. Using biochemical, genetic, and cell biological approach, the Qian laboratory investigates nutritional and genetic determinants of adaptive stress response in growth and aging. Specific research interests include chaperone network and ubiquitin/proteasome system, nutrient sensing pathway mTOR (the mammalian target of rapamycin), and translational regulation of gene expression. Elucidation of regulatory mechanisms may help develop therapeutic strategies for human diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, and neurodegenerative disorders.
