After his masters program, Dr. Lan moved to Washington DC where he met his wife and worked as a lab manager in a proteoglycomics lab at Georgetown University. He went on to earn his Ph.D. in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology Program at The Ohio State University where his research involved metabolomics and data science. Before joining ACNC, he was an Instructor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at UAMS and worked at the UAMS Proteomics Core. Dr. Lan enjoys sports and music.
Dr. Lan’s current research focuses on using metabolomics and lipidomics methods to study precision nutrition in pediatric health. Within the ACNC Metabolomics core, he works with ACNC investigators and other collaborators in the analysis of metabolomics profiling in a variety of human and animal samples, including plasma, serum, tissues, urine, human milk, and fecal/cecal contents using both untargeted and target liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS) methods. He and his team recently developed the lipidomics platform to analyze lipidome in a given sample matrix.
