RESEARCH FOCUS

 Professor Ingrid Liu's laboratory is located at Tzu Chi University, Hualien, Taiwan.The Ingrid Liu lab has been focusing on researching the molecular mechanism underlying memory formation and brain disorders.

Ingrid's lab uses several knockout/transgenic mouse models including the 3xTg Alzheimer's disease model, the Cav3.2 knockout model, and the peroxiredoxin 6 knockout model, to investigate key molecules involved in critical steps of memory information.

The lab also use these mouse models to select for effective novel drugs and treatments for related diseases.
