Jingyan Han, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in Vascular Biology at Boston University School of Medicine. She holds a BS, MS, and PhD in Pharmacology. Two years before her initial appointment she worked in Dr. Richard Cohen's Laboratory. She's received funding from the American Heart Association, the NIH, and the Central Society for Clinical Research. She describes her current research as being "focused on defining the role of redox mediated post-translational protein modifications, such as S-glutathione cysteine adducts, in the regulation of micro and macro vascular barrier integrity, in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis that is the major cause of cardiovascular diseases."
