The Healthy Aging Research Center at Taipiei’s Chang Gung University (CGU) signed on as a Waters Centers of Innovation (COI) program partner—the first in Taiwan.

Waters established the COI program to recognize analytical scientists facilitating advances in health and life science research, food safety, environmental protection, sports medicine, and other areas through the use of liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry.

Led by Daniel Tsun-Yee Chiu, Ph.D., dean of R&D, and director of CGU’s Healthy Aging Research Center, the center focuses on the implementation of advanced analytical science to answer key questions on the mechanisms of disease that affect human health, particularly in the elderly. Dr. Chiu has a special interest in the effects of oxidative stress on cellular function and establishing reference laboratories to assess oxidative stress and antioxidant capacity in health and in diseases.

“Dr. Chiu and his colleague, Professor Ming-Shi Shiao have been advocates, technical advisors, and pioneers in the field of metabolomics, metabolite I.D. and profiling in Taiwan for many years. Their considerable influence within CGU, as well as other major Taiwanese and international institutes is well deserved,” said Dean Yu, general manager of Waters Taiwan.

Currently, the Healthy Aging Research Center is equipped with Waters® Synapt® HDMS systems, ACQUITY UPLC® systems, including an ACQUITY® UPC2 system, and Xevo® TQ-S systems.
