Personal profile

Dr Xiaodong Jin is an assistant professor (2022 - present) in the Department of Chemistry with expertise in synthetic chemistry. The primary research areas in his group include designing molecules for the transmembrane signal transduction system, skeletal editing, nucleoside chemistry, and synthesising heterocycles.Xiaodong obtained his PhD degree from Imperial College London in 2018, focusing on the synthesis of small molecules and copper catalysis. After completing his PhD, he was a research associate at the University of Sheffield for synthetic research work funded by EPSRC (2018-2022) and CRUK (2021-2022). The work primarily centres on designing responsive transmembrane molecules, RNA hydrolysis, and DNA damage in human genes.
