Dr. Feng Jin, was born in Inner Mongolia in 1956. He obtained two rewards: Japanese Government Scholarship (Ministry of Science and Education) and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). Dr. Jin studied in The University of Tokyo, and received his master degree and doctorate in anthropology and human genetics from The Faculty of Science, the University of Tokyo. Dr. Jin has been working for the Chinese Academy of Sciences since 1975, at first in the Institute of Genetics, and then, in the Institute of Psychology. As the Principal Investigator of research group of Behavior Biology Studies, he is working in the Key Laboratory of Mental Health, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Research Interests:
In 1975, Feng Jin entered into Institute of Genetics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. From 1983, he has engaged in the scientific researches in human genetics and molecular medicine, especially in population genetics and degenerated diseases. In 2003, in his virus control studies, Dr. Jin found that some special bacteria might change the behavior of mammals, and proposed his presumption:Bacteria act an important role in forming the gut brain together with neurons of digestive system, and regulate mammals behaviors such as anxiety and stress, as well as the strong capacity against viruses infection and diffusion. After a series of animal experiments and clinical trials, his research group successfully applied probiotics in respiratory tract infected disease control and mental disorder therapy. Since 2008 Dr. Jin’s group has developed various of probiotic reagents and distributed them into Japanese market for digestive disease, depression, cancer, and Crohn’s disease therapy. The application has obtained high evaluation in Japan.
From 2010, Dr. Jin has concentrated the studies on Parkinson syndrome, senile cognitive disorder. Helicobacter pylori infectious, atopic skin inflammation, etc., and has developed special symbiosis bacteria delaying the degeneration and allergy. Dr. Jin and his colleagues have found series of functional bacteria which have been registered in NCBI and patented as the NS Lactate Bacteria and NS Symbiosis Bacteria, respectively.
The research group has aimed to the efficient and safe therapy for mental disorder, as well as ecological security cultivation in agriculture and husbandry industries. Dr. Jin’s group emphasized more in the application for physical and mental health.
