Dr. Dongxu Lin

Postdoctoral Associate
Cell Biology Yale University

Brief Biography:

Dr. Lin received a B.S. in Microbiology (Biotechnology) and a Ph.D. in Molecular Microbiology from China Agricultural University (CAU) in Beijing. While a graduate student at CAU, Dr. Lin analyzed the molecular diversity, ecology and evolution relationships of bacteria isolated from two herbal legumes and proposed two novel bacterial species. In the summer of 2007 he conducted studies involving high pH stress resistance and discovered a novel potassium related function of putative sugar ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter in Sinorhizobium meliloti.

After graduating from CAU in 2008 Dr. Lin became a post-doctoral research fellow at Molecular and Human Genetics department of Baylor College of Medicine where he brought environmental stress research into genomic level. In 2011 his work on stress-induced chromosomal structural changes was published on PLoS Genetics. Then he went to Cell Biology department of Yale University in the Winter of 2011 as a post-doctoral associate scientist continue to pursue his career on how cells adapt to stress change at cellular level.
