Hao Jin, Ph.D., Principal Investigator

Dr. Jin received his Bachelor of Science degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He completed his Ph.D. in the National University of Singapore on the developmental biology of blood stem and immune cells. He was then trained as a postdoc in Columbia University where he switched to study the neurobiology of mammalian taste. In 2022, he began his new position as a tenure-track investigator in the Laboratory of Host Immunity and Microbiome (LHIM) at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). His research at LHIM intersects neuroscience with immunology, exploring the new frontier of the regulation of immune responses by the nervous system with an integrative multimodal approach that combines contemporary neurobiology and immunobiology tools and techniques.
