Genetic epidemiology; pharmacogenomics; clinical psychiatry
Dr. Lin earned his PhD from Johns Hopkins University and MD from National Taiwan University. He has published 16 peer-review research articles and one book chapter in the field of neuropsychiatric genetics. His publications in the past 7 years have been cited by more than 350 publications. One of his research articles, entitled "No Gene Is an Island: The Flip-Flop Phenomenon," published on American Journal of Human Genetics, alone has obtained nearly 260 citations within 5 years. He received a Travel Award (only 10 recipients were selected) from 11th International Congress of Human Genetics in 2006. In 2007, Dr. Lin was invited to the press debriefing at American Society of Human Genetics Meeting. Additionally, he received an award for his genetic research of autism by Taiwan Society of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in 2010. His current research interests are focused on pharmacogenomics research related to neuropsychiatric diseases.
