Jin also completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency (2013) in the Eastman Institute for Oral Health, University of Rochester and a General Practice Residency (2014) in the Strong Memorial Hospital. Jin has a background of oral microbiology and translational research, she intends to develop a career of bridging clinical practice and translational research and translate the research findings into innovative strategies targeting treating biofilm-related infection disease. She has published eighteen peer-reviewed articles in top-tier microbiology, oral biology and dental research journals. Additionally, she won first place in the American Association for Dental Research Hatton-Competition Award, which is the most prestigious-competitive award for young investigators conducting dental/oral research in the US/Canada. She is currently interested in investigating the virulence and three-dimensional structure of oral and peri-implant multispecies biofilms.
