Dr. Jian-Ping Jin, professor and chair, Department of Physiology at Wayne State University, will present, “Regulation and Function of Troponin in Cardiac and Skeletal Muscles” at this month’s Taubman Visiting Professor lecture.
Dr. Jin’s research revolves around the gene regulation and structure and function relationships of contractile and cytoskeleton proteins. His work focuses on several actin thin filament related proteins: troponin, calponin, nebulin and titin, and their gene regulation.
The A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute’s Visiting Professor lecture series brings nationally recognized scientists and experts to the University of Michigan campus for a presentation and reception. The events, which are open to the public, take place on the third Wednesday of every month from 4-5 p.m. in the Danto Auditorium of the Cardiovascular Center.
