Dr. Lin is a Research Biochemist in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at UCSF. She did her postdoctoral research with Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, investigating telomerase function and regulation in budding yeast. For the past 6 years, she has focused on using telomere length, telomerase activity and telomere capping measurements as biomarkers for aging and aging-related diseases and conditions in various clinical studies and trials assessing the role of telomere maintenance in health and aging. She pioneered measurement of telomerase activity assay in unstimulated blood cells from clinical samples. She also developed high throughput telomere length measurement suitable for large scale clinical studies. She is the project manager for over 30 collaborative projects in Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn’s lab that examine the role of telomere length and telomerase activity in health and human diseases, and has published seminal articles on telomere biology. Dr. Jue Lin obtained her Ph.D. in molecular biology at Cornell University.
