Interested in the biology of gastrointestinal tract, in 2014, completed his thesis on the role and function of blood sugar antigen LeY and its synthesizing enzyme fucosyltransferase IV (FUT IV) in gastric cancer, subsequently became a Postdoctoral Fellow under supervision of Prof. Dr Zigang Dong at The Hormel Institute, USA and China. His research area is the translation research of gastro and gastrointestinal diseases, mainly focused on the role of H. pylori in association with host and different environmental factors to induce gastric inflammation leading to gastric cancer. For the past few years, He has studied the blood sugar antigens LeY, LeX, sLeX and it’s synthesize fucosylated enzymes (FUTs) enzymes in gastric inflammation leading to gastric cancer. He was trying to understand how the H. pylori association with different environmental factors initiates and persistence of gastric inflammation which leads to carcinogenesis. Moreover, His attempt to apply the imminent gained for discovering improved therapy against persistence inflammation by utilizing dietary anti-inflammatory agents.
