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,

from the mevalonate pathway. His current research points
out the importance of the geranylgeranyl lipid for hepatitis
C virus (HCV) RNA replication, providing a potential new
target for treatment of HCV.
