Education Experience

Research Summary

Dr. Jin has been carried a series of studies on genetic susceptibility, epigenetic changes, and their interactions with environmental exposures in colorectal cancer and its precancerous lesions, using molecular epidemiological approaches, with the combination of population-based and hospital-based case-control studies, to clarify their etiology, identify proper biomarkers, and develop efficient risk assessment model. 

Dr. Jin also has been studied the risk prediction of hepatocellular carcinoma developing from chronic HCV and HBV patients with cohort study design and the current challenges of hepatocellular carcinoma screening among high-risk population.

Dr. Jin also has been leading a series of studies on the relationships of alcohol drinking with cancer deaths with evidence-based assessments and systematic reviews. 

And now, she mainly focuses on the etiology, epidemiology, prevention and control of colorectal cancer and cervical cancer.
