About Our Lab:
Dr. Sheau Ching Chai is the principal investigator of CHAI Nutrition and Health Laboratory in the Department of Behavioral Health at the University of Delaware. Her research focuses on investigating the role of functional foods (foods and food components that provide a health benefit beyond basic nutrition) and dietary antioxidants in prevention and reduction of age- and nutrition-related chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and cognitive decline. Other areas of research include investigation of the link between inflammation, oxidative stress, and chronic conditions in humans. Dr. Chai has conducted several dietary intervention studies involving older adults and postmenopausal women. Her research findings have shown that several plant-derived foods are able to reduce the risks of cardiovascular disease, bone loss and cognitive decline.
