Biography

Jin Xiao earned her DDS (2003), and PhD in oral microbiology (2009) from West China College of Stomatology, Sichuan University, China. She completed her last two years of PhD study (2007-2009) in the Center of Oral Biology, University of Rochester and followed by one year postdoctoral training in the Center of Oral Biology. 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.
