Dr. Jin Ye received a M.S. degree in Biochemistry from Case Western Reserve University in 1995. He was mentored by Nobel laureates Michael Brown and Joseph Goldstein at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, obtaining his Ph.D. in Cell Regulation in 2000, and continuing in a postdoctoral fellowship from 2000 to 2004. He joined the faculty at UT Southwestern Medical Center in 2004 as an Assistant Professor and became an Associate Professor in 2012.

The research interests of Dr. Ye's lab are to delineate the roles of lipid metabolism in cancer development and treatment. His current research focuses on understanding how increased synthesis of fatty acids facilitates development of certain cancers, and how elevated production of ceramide blocks proliferation of cancer cells.

Dr. Ye is affiliated with the graduate school of UT Southwestern Medical Center. He is currently appointed as a full member of the graduate faculty in the Biological Chemistry Program.
