About Jinmai Jiang
Dr. Jiang joined the Department of Pharmaceutics at the University of Florida College of Pharmacy as a Research Assistant Professor in July 2015. His current research focuses on (1) Discovery of miRNA as extracellular biomarkers for PDAC diagnosis and prognosis; (2) Discovery of miRNA as biomarker and mediator in pain; (3) The interaction of host cell and microbe via fecal miRNA; (4) The profile and function of small RNA in pancreatic ADM process; (5) Exploring the extracellular small RNA atlas with NGS method. He has published 30 peer-reviewed papers and 3 book chapters (in press).
