Washington University in St. Louis


Jin-Yu Shao

Associate Professor
Prior to joining the faculty at Washington University in St. Louis in 1998, Professor Shao was an assistant research professor at Duke University.

Professor Shao is a member of the Biomedical Engineering Society, Biophysical Society, and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
Professor Shao works to develop new insights in cellular and molecular engineering by creating a new technique of imposing femtonewton- to nononewton-level forces to proteins and cells. This technique will allow for unique contributions to molecular biomechanics and protein-protein interactions.
He also works to further understand infectious and inflammatory diseases by combining theoretical modeling and experimental approaches.
