Our Research

About

The Jin lab focuses on discovering the mechanisms underlying the development and function of the nervous system using the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Our ultimate goal is to connect the studies of basic mechanisms to the understanding of human neurological disorders and neuronal repair.
