Extensive Research Description

Dr. Jin is the Director-General of the National Institute for Environmental Health and Related Product Safety for the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention. His research interests are environmental pollution and human health, particularly in environmental epidemiology and the impacts of air pollution, climate change and water pollution on human health, especially in children, women and the elderly. Dr. Jin is the Principal Investigator (PI) for a prospective comparative study of the health impacts from exposure to different types of outdoor air pollution in four large Chinese cities collaborated with Yale School of Public Health. He also serves as PI and as co-investigator on numerous environmental epidemiologic studies.
