Dr. Ouyang has longstanding interests in the research of immunology, with specific training and demonstrated expertise in key research areas of immunobiology in tissue inflammation. He received Ph.D. from Osaka University in Japan. He completed his postdoctoral training with Dr. Tadamitsu Kishimoto at Osaka University and Dr. Tadatsugu Taniguchi at Tokyo University. Metabolic stress to the liver, in the absence of pathogens, results in sterile inflammatory responses that cause liver injury. This has important implications for clinically significant inflammation in ASH, NASH, fibrosis, and HCC. Dr. Ouyang has focused on identifying the mechanisms and key regulators of post-translational protein modifications and RNA epigenetics for the control of metabolic inflammation in liver diseases.  Dr. Ouyang has published in Cell Metabolism, Nature Communication, Science, Journal of Hepatology, Cell Death & Differentiation, Cell Reports, etc..

Positions are available in my lab for motivated graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and visiting scholars interested in investigating the RNA epigenetics to protein translation machinery in metabolic diseases. Individual career development plans are provided to lab staff members to assist them to succeed
