Before joining CDI, Dr. Shin was an assistant professor of Medical Sciences in the Department of Medicine since 2019. Dr. Shin obtained her BS and MS from South Korea. After she moved to the US, she received her PhD from Emory University where she studied non-cell autonomous contribution in the pathophysiology of Huntington’s disease. As a postdoctoral scientist at UCSF, Dr. Shin conducted research in neurogenetics. Later, she did another postdoctoral research at Columbia University to study the functions of nuclear envelope proteins in liver lipid metabolism and striated muscle diseases.
