Ye Hui holds a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. Before joining NTU, Ye Hui served as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC).

Ye Hui's research interests revolve around the development of functional foods tailored to specific gender and age requirements. This includes exploring the regulatory roles of food chemicals in energy homeostasis, and their potential structural activity relationship. His research aims to develop food functionality for a specific purpose with foods “designed” to contain specific functional components for a desired positive health outcome.
Functional food, Energy homeostasis, Metabolism, Nutrition, and Neuroscience
  • 27-Hydroxycholesterol acts on estrogen receptor α expressed by pro-opiomelanocortin neurons in the arcuate nucleus to modulate energy homeostasis
  • Exploring regulatory roles of dietary phytoestrogens in glucose homeostasis and investigating the potential structural activity relationship
  • Exploring the centre regulatory roles of Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances on energy homeostasis
  • Study on the regulator roles of raspberry ketone on energy intake and energy expenditure
