PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR

JENNIE LIN, MD MTR

AB (Harvard University 2005), MD (University of Texas Medical School at Houston 2009), MTR (University of Pennsylvania, 2017)

Internship and Residency (University of Colorado 2009-2012), Nephrology Fellowship (University of Pennsylvania 2012-2014)

I am a nephrologist and physician-scientist building a research program dedicated to the translation of human-based discoveries to new biological insights. Merging my clinical interest in kidney disease with my research training at Penn's Cardiovascular Institute, my research focuses on functional interrogation of how novel genes identified through human genetics studies impact phenotypes relevant to cardiometabolic and renal diseases. My group employs an integrative approach including cellular models derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells with genome-editing technology, animal-based mechanistic studies, and transcriptomic and proteomic discovery.

Outside of work, I love indulging in foodie adventures, spinning, skiing, reading thought-provoking prose, and spending time with my two hounds.
