Research Interests

Dr. Jue's research includes development and application of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopic/imaging techniques to study metabolic regulation in normal and tumor tissues in vivo. His current research focuses on 1) refining high resolution NMR techniques to investigate the cellular response to limiting oxygen and the control of oxidative phosphorylation in myocardium and skeletal muscle 2) developing chemical shift imaging technique to spatially map tissue oxygenation and metabolite levels in vivo 3) determining the structure and function of proteins, in particular myoglobin in the cell 4) assess the function of uncoupling protein in body weight regulation 5) observing embryogenesis in transgenic mice and 6) mapping angiogenesis and metastasis.
