Hongmei Wu, PhD, lecturer in Tianjin Medical University,and 131 third-level talent in Tianjin. Mainly engaged in the Tianjin Chronic Low Grade Systemic Inflammation and Health (TCLSIHealth) Cohort Study and the Tianjin Elderly Nutritional Epidemiology Cohort Study. The TCLSIHealth Cohort Study is a large prospective dynamic cohort study focusing on the relationships between chronic low-grade systemic inflammation and the health status of a population living in Tianjin, China. The Tianjin Elderly Nutritional Epidemiology Cohort Study mainly explores the effects of nutrition on chronic diseases in elderly, especially focusing on mechanisms, risk factors, association with diseases and prevention of sarcopenia. In this field, I have published 7 papers in international scientific journals as the first author or co-first author, 1 Chinese review, and completed a Chinese book writing.
