In the December 6, 2010 issue of CHEMICAL & ENGINEERING NEWS, Jin is featured in the "Science & Technology Concentrates" section in an article entitled, "Kinase's Oscillatory Behavior Controls Cell Signalling".
It is a distinct pleasure to share the news that our own colleague, Jin Zhang, was bestowed with one of the 2009 NIH Pioneer Awards on September 24, 2009, the first of these to a Hopkins School of Medicine faculty member. This tremendous and lucrative honor recognizes her prior accomplishments and visionary ideas and will allow Jin and her lab to develop novel methods to control and probe cell signaling. Jin has been featured in the September 24, 2009 issue of BALTIMORE BUSINESS JOURNAL in an article entitled, "Johns Hopkins University researchers win $4M in NIH grants." Congratulations, Jin, for receiving this fabulous recognition!
In the June 2008 issue of ASBMB Today, Jin is featured in the "Annual Meeting: A Recap of San Diego 2008" section in an article entitled, "New Strategies for Imaging Protein Localization and Dynamics".
In the August 7, 2006 issue of CHEMICAL & ENGINEERING NEWS, Jin, Lisa DiPilato, Michael Allen, and Meghdad Radhar are featured in the "Science & Technology" section in an article entitled, "A Boost for Biosensors: Beefing up signal of FRET kinase biosensors makes inexpensive high-throughput screening possible."
In the November 15, 2004 issue of the Johns Hopkins E-Newsletter, there is an article featuring Jin entitled, "New tool highlights activity of key cellular signal." The article highlights Dr. Zhang's 2004 paper: Fluorescent Indicators of cAMP and Epac Activation Reveal Differential Dynamics of cAMP Signaling within Discrete Subcellular Compartments (2004). L. M. DiPilato, X. Cheng, and J. Zhang, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 101:16513-16518. Pub Med Reference
