Dr. Lu got his bachelor degree in chemistry from Beijing University of Chemical Technology. He earned his PhD degree from UNC Chapel Hill, followed by a postdoctoral training at MIT.   The current emphasis of his research is being placed on microbiome research and exposome mapping. His lab aims at answering how gut microbiome interacts with environmental exposure using omics-based approaches, how gut microbiome affects disease susceptibility, and how host factors crosstalk with microbiome to influence its response. Another focus of his lab is to discovery biomarkers and map exposome for human disease, with the goals of characterizing all exposures over the lifespan via high-resolution mass spectrometry.
