We build the publications from HKU and external sources automatically. If you do not see your publications here, please note:
  • We receive data from HKU's Research Output System (ROS), after you or your people enter data there. If you have entered, or are going to enter data into ROS, we do not want to enter them manually into the Hub, as it will create duplicates. When entering data into ROS, please remember to include the DOI or ISBN. It will help us match on outside sources, and dedup.
  • If you are NOT going to enter publication data into ROS, or if you have publications from before your time at HKU, please put them into an EndNote file and send to us, hub@lib.hku.hk. It will allow us to enter in batch. HKU has a site license for EndNote. You may google for "endnote@hk". HKU Libraries can instruct on Endnote, either in class or one on one, http://lib.hku.hk/general/help.html
  • You may log into your ResearcherPage with your HKU Portal, and use the "Manage Publications" entry on the green left side menu, to unlink publications from your ResearcherPage, or, select a few to appear in a new box, "Selected Publications".
  • Confused? Please write to hub@lib.hku.hk.

     Biography

    Ruby L.C. Hoo is currently a research assistant professor of Department of Medicine, the University of Hong Kong. She received her MPhil and PhD in biological science at The University of Hong Kong in 2000 and 2003. She is then carried out her post-doctoral training at division of endocrinology at The University of Hong Kong.

    Her research focuses on adipokines and hepatokines including adiponectin, fibroblast growth factor (FGF) 21 and adipocyte fatty acid binding protein (A-FABP) and their molecular mechanisms underlying obesity and its related cardio-metabolic complications. Recently, she reported that A-FABP is an important contributor to both LPS-induced acute liver injury and diet-induced non-alcoholic fatty liver disease by potentiating inflammation in hepatic resident macrophages, Kupffer cells. Pharmacological inhibition of A-FABP may represent a promising modality for obesity-related non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. Her research is funded by by RGC General Research Fund in Hong Kong, Seed Funding Programme for Basic Research from HKU and National Natural Science Foundation from China.
