Xing Jian, PhD

Assistant Professor

With training in molecular biology and epigenetics, my primary research interest is the chromatin organization in human pancreatic beta cells, and how this knowledge can be used to elucidate molecular mechanisms underlying genetic susceptibility in diabetes mellitus. At Coriell, I am interested in working with our stem cell laboratory to develop ex vivo human pancreatic islets model systems to serve as biomimetic devices for diabetes research.

As a Scientist working with the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke's Human Genetic Research Center, I manage and maintain the repository, and I promote the NINDS repository in a variety of ways, including attending scientific conferences with the neurogenetics community.
