Dr. Jin’s Bio

Chengliu Jin, Ph.D.
Director, Transgenic and Gene Targeting Core
Georgia State University

Background:
Dr. Jin comes to Georgia State University from the Texas A&M Health Science Center in Houston, TX, where he was supervisor of the Mouse Genetics Technology Core Laboratory at the Institute of Biosciences and Technology. His mouse genetics expertise includes the operation of the core laboratory; design and creation of DNA constructs; ES cell culture; animal surgery for vasectomy, embryo harvesting and transfer; preparation of genetically engineered mice by ES cell and pronuclear microinjection; rederivations; sperm and embryo cryopreservation; In vitro fertilization (IVF); breeding colony management; animal husbandry; and drug testing. His mouse genetics work was performed for principal investigators, within and outside of the institute at a 100 percent success rate with minimal delivery time.

In addition to his transgenic technology activities, Dr. Jin was also a research scientist at the Center for Cancer and Stem Cell Biology at the institute. His research focused on fibroblast growth factor (FGF) signaling pathway in mouse models of prostate and breast cancer. During his time at the institute, he had 21 publications. He was a key person in basic research/clinical collaboration with MD Anderson Cancer Center, The University of Texas on obesity and breast cancer, and was funded by the Susan Komen Foundation.
