Defining the molecular mechanisms important for cellular protein synthesis and quality control.
The long-term goal of the Jin laboratory is to determine the molecular basis for quality control mechanisms and regulatory processes mediated by proteins and RNAs in translation. We use a combination of state-of-the-art structural biology, and biochemical and biophysical techniques to answer fundamental questions in molecular biology. We are uniquely positioned to investigate these fundamental questions that require a combination of calculated risk-taking and a focused desire to tackle important yet underexplored areas of science. Our passion and experience in RNA research will guide us and we look forward to the challenges and opportunities in this exciting journey!
