Sun Lab

Our lab investigates the impact of ambient air pollution and ambient temperature changes on human health and disease development, especially cardiovascular diseases and cancer. We utilize “Versatile Aerosol Concentrator and Enrichment System” to mimic “real world” fine-particulate matter exposure, and we apply “Temperature Chamber System” to create an isolated microenvironment for heat wave or cold stimulation. These systems are especially good for exploring the underlying mechanisms using genetics, molecular biology and cell biology in murine models.
