This essay’s arguments are set in the context of Confucian moral commitments that…Read more

    The apolipoprotein E gene plays an important role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease , and amyloid plaque comprised mostly of the amyloid-beta peptide ) is one of the major hallmarks of AD. However, the relationship between these two important molecules is poorly understood. We examined how A treatment affects APOE expression in cultured cells and tested the role of the transcription factor NF-B in APOE gene regulation. To delineate NF-B's role, we have characterized a 1098 nucleotide se…Read more

    The Family and Harmonious Medical Decision Making: Cherishing an Appropriate Confucian Moral Balance
    with R. Fan
    Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 35 (5): 573-586. 2010.

The essay discloses the roots of the Chinese model in the Confucian account of the family and the Confucian view of harmony. By responding to a series of questions posed to the Chinese model by modern Western scholars in terms of the basic individualist concerns an…Read more
