Her translational research projects funded by the Singapore National Medical Research Council are directed towards functional characterization of pathways involved in type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular complications. The research program leverages on ethnic differences in the predisposition for cardio metabolic disease, and use of primary human cell lines coupled with human physiology studies. The aim is to bridge the gap between human genetic/ epidemiologic association signals and functional mechanism, with the overall goal of developing improved approaches to managing cardio-metabolic disease.
