Jian Han, MD, PhD

Technology development to advance medical science

Jian Han, MD, PhD, is adjunct faculty at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology. Han has more than 30 years of experience developing molecular diagnostic technologies and products. He is interested in developing integrated solutions for molecular differential diagnosis and developing a technology platform that allows multiplex molecular differential diagnoses to carried out in a fashion that is high throughput, semi-quantitative, automatic, and in a closed system. He studies the immunorepertoire of different autoimmune diseases and cancers using multiplex PCR and high-throughput gene sequencing. As the director of the R10K project, Han leads a team that is sequencing 10,000 samples and studying biomarkers for 100 diseases. He earned his MD from ShuZhou Medical College in China in 1983 and his PhD in clinical molecular genetics from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1991. He was founder, CEO and CSO of Geneco Biomedical Products before joining HudsonAlpha in 2007. He founded two HudsonAlpha associate companies, iRepertoire and iCubate, in 2009.
