Biochemistry and Nutrition of Sport Training

Biochemistry and Nutrition of Sport Training Research Laboratory

The main research interest within the laboratory is to assess the specific biomarkers of nutritional supplements and/or physiological effects in sports training. The primary investigator of the research laboratory is Dr. Kuei-Hui Chan who was trained and got her PhD degree from the National Taiwan Sports University, Taiwan. All research projects within the research group were carried out via different parameters of blood and/or physiology base on the characteristics of the supplement and/or training. The research team looks forward to bringing nutrition and training information to athletes to enhance performance and maintain health.
