"Understanding Signaling Roles of Metabolites in Longevity Regulation"   Metabolism is fundamental to life. During metabolic reactions, thousands of metabolites are generated, which are directly connected with cellular activities and highly conserved across species. In addition to their best-known functions as structural building blocks and energy resources, research in my group focuses on their signaling roles in orchestrating cellular homeostasis and organismal fitness. Our work investigates metabolite-directed signaling networks in cellular, organismal and interspecies communication, as well as their roles in improving healthy aging. Technically, we applied stimulated Raman scattering microscopy for metabolite fingerprinting in living cells and organisms, revealing regulatory mechanisms that govern spatiotemporal dynamics of lipid molecules under both physiological and pathological conditions.
