Dr. Yu Wang's Group

Dr. Yu Wang's lab focuses on the discovery of flavor active compounds and the health-benefiting bioactive compounds in natural products using state of the art analytical techniques combined with bioactivity-guided assays. Our research encompasses four main areas:

  • Flavor profiles of citrus and other agricultural commodities (hops, lychee, pomegranate etc.)
  • flavor modulation: aroma and taste interactions, aroma release and taste modulation
  • health benefits of citrus, citrus byproducts and other agricultural commodities; and
  • metabolomics studies for early disease diagnosis and pathology insight.
