Dr. Jay W. Shin acquired his PhD at ETH Zurich, Switzerland after his research training at Harvard Medical School (HMS) under Prof. Michael Detmar. During this period, Dr. Shin investigated Transcriptional Regulatory Network controlling tumor angiogenesis. Passionate for the interworkings of gene regulation, he continued his research at the RIKEN Yokohama Institute in Japan under Dr. Yoshihide Hayashizaki as a postdoctoral fellow. Now, as a team leader, Jay is co-leading FANTOM6 – elucidating the functional role of long non-coding RNAs - and the Human Cell Atlas project – global profile of the human body at the single cell resolution. Jay enjoys developing new technologies and functional genomics platforms to decipher the molecular mechanisms involved in cellular plasticity and reprogramming.
