Dr. Albert Jin’s current research focuses in the areas of biomedical imaging, macromolecular biophysics, biotechnology, and nanomedicine. Most recently, his research has involved studies of biological and lipid membranes, malaria vaccine proteins, subcellular trafficking and cellular dynamics, biomechanics, multifunctional theranostics, and biomaterials. Dr. Jin’s primary research tools are atomic force microscopy (AFM), high-resolution optical and fluorescent spectroscopic imaging, and quartz-crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D) measurements. He has also built several precision biomedical research instruments used at NIH. Additionally, to optimize data interpretation and outcomes, he seeks to improve strategies for complex data analysis and biomedical modeling methods.
