Zhao, Jin Jean

Post-doctoral Fellow

Division of Public Health Laboratory Sciences

  • B.S, M.S, Ph.D

Dr. Zhao Jin obtained her Ph.D degree from the School of Public Health (Shenzhen) of the Sun Yat-Sen University. During her Ph.D, she used different cell lines and animal models to work on IFN-stimulated genes (ISGs) that regulates antiviral immunity in order to understand the broadly antiviral mechanisms of ISG and exploring novel antiviral targets.

Dr. Zhao joined the School of Public Health as Post-doctoral Fellow in 2022. Her current research focuses on the mechanisms of virus transmission. Study the modes of transmission for influenza and other respiratory viruses.
