Dr. Jinping Luo

Dr. Luo joined Brown University as the Director of the Mouse Transgenic and Gene Targeting Facility on January 15, 2019. Before coming to Brown University, Dr. Luo had worked at the Applied StemCell, Inc., in California, where he was the Director and Principle Scientist of the Animal Model Department responsible for the generation of gene knockin/knockout mouse and rat models. Prior to that, he held positions working on mouse transgenesis in the transgenic facility at the University of Utah and in a research lab at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. Dr. Luo earned a PhD in Histology and Embryology at Fudan University in Shanghai. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Kansas Medical Center.

At Brown, Dr. Luo is responsible for CRISPR-Cas9-based production of user-defined transgenic mice and the overall management of the Mouse Transgenic and Gene Targeting Facility. He supervises the overall operation of the facility including cryopreservation and rederivation services, ensures facility compliance with IACUC regulations, and provides consultation to investigators.
