Professor of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences
Director, Beijing Institute of Ophthalmology, Beijing Tongren Hospital, Capital Medical University;
Dr. Jin is the professor of Capital Medical University (CMU) and director of Beijing Institute of Ophthalmology, Beijing Tongren Hospital, CMU. He received 3-year resident training in Ophthalmology after obtain his M.D. (MBBS) from Wenzhou Medical College in 2000. Afterward, he obtained Ph.D degree from University of Miyazaki in 2007 and then worked for 2-year as a postdoctoral fellow (JSPS fellowship) and 2-year research scientist (FPR) at the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology under Dr. Masayo Takahashi’s supervision before returning to Wenzhou Medical College (renamed as University in 2013) in 2011. Until the end of 2019, he was the professor and the dean of Graduate School of the WMU. In 2020, he relocated at the current position. He focuses on stem cell translational medicine and genetic mechanisms of ocular diseases. His team is dedicating to make efforts on elucidating the disease mechanisms of inherited retinal degeneration and children ocular disorders, translating laboratory technology to improve bedside outcome, and solving key basic problems together with top-tier retina specialists. He is also developing RPE/photoreceptor replacement therapy using induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells and bio-degradable scaffolds. For the first time, he established RP patient-derived iPS cells and retinal organoids for disease modeling and cell replacement.
