Research Summary

Professor LIU’s research focuses on the PK-PD modeling and the disease progression modeling for complex diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease as well as T2DM. He recently published a paper entitled " Evaluating Alzheimers disease progression by modeling crosstalk network disruption." Aβ, tau and P-tau have been widely accepted as reliable markers for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The crosstalk between these markers forms a complex network. AD may induce the integral variation and disruption of the network. The aim of this study was to develop a novel mathematic model based on a simplified crosstalk network to evaluate the disease progression of AD.This research evaluates the progression of AD and facilitates AD early diagnosis, which will improve our understanding of MCI-to-AD conversion mechanism.
