Xueting Jin obtained her M.D. from the Medical Center of Fudan University, Shanghai, and qualified as a physician in 2012. During medical school, she participated in several research projects, mainly focused on the mechanism of atherosclerosis. She is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, NIH, Bethesda, Maryland. Her research interests include disorders of cholesterol metabolism, focused on Schnyder corneal dystrophy and atherosclerosi
Michael L. Nickerson obtained a Ph.D. in Molecular Medicine from the George Washington University and has made significant contributions to the identification of disease genes, including the Birt-Hogg-Dub? gene in chromophobe kidney cancer, the dead-end gene in testicular cancer, the fumaratehydratase gene in leiomyomatosis and papillary kidney cancer,andthe UBIAD1 gene in Schnyder Corneal Dystrophy (SCD). He has applied exome sequencing of tumor genomes to identify TET2 alterations in prostate cancer and BAP1 and CHD1 mutations in bladder cancer. UBIAD1 mutations in over 50 SCD families, and enzyme structure, function, and binding partners have been published.
