The studies performed in Liu lab mainly focus on the structure and function of membrane receptors, including G protein coupled receptor (GPCR) and ion channel, as well as the physiological outputs of those receptors, and the molecular pharmacology research on those receptors; In addition, we investigates the regulatory mechanism of those membrane receptors on aging and aging related diseases, using C.elegans as a model.

Main achievements: 81 papers have been published in international professional journals, such asNature(2021,2021), Cell (2016, 2019), Nature Chemical Biology, Science Advances, Nature Communications (2015, 2016, 2019,2024), Angew Chem Int Ed Engl, PNAS, EMBO J, Cell Reports, J Neurosci and so on, with more than 5000 citations.
