Dr. Jianfeng Lin obtained his PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Xiamen University in 2008, and performed postdoctoral studies at Brandeis University and then at UT Southwestern Medical Center with Professor Daniela Nicastro. His research enhances the understanding of molecular mechanisms of ciliary motility (e.g. Lin and Nicastro, Science, 2018), dynein movement (e.g. Lin et al., Nat Cell Biol, 2014), and ciliopathies that lead to chronic respiratory disease (e.g. Lin et al., Nat Commun, 2014). In 2017, Dr. Lin joined Thermo Fisher Scientific as a Field Applications Scientist and supported the cryo-EM researchers in the U.S. and China. Dr. Lin started his appointment at the MB&B department as a Research Scientist in November 2020 to unify three EM facilities at Yale as a single functional unit, the Yale CryoEM Resource (YCR), and support both internal and external cryo-EM communities.
