Lecture Place: Room 1002, Main Teaching Building
Host: Professor You Jing
Prof. Dai Jiayin, leader of the ecotoxicology research group and vice director of the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Key Laboratory of Animal Ecology and Conservation Biology, Institute of Zoology, lectured on “Ecological Toxicology Research of Perfluorochemical and Its Substitute” on Oct. 15 as part of JNU’s 110th-Anniversary Technology Lecture Series. It was the School of Envoronment’s 9th Academic Lecture.
Dr. Dai was elected to the Academy’s “100 Talented People” program in 2005 and honored by the National Outstanding Youth Fund in 2010. His interests focus on environmental fate, ecotoxicological effects and toxic mechanisms of persistent organic pollutants (POPs). He has also done research on the environmental distribution and process of persistent organic pollutants, such as perfluorochemicals and halogenated compounds; species’responses to pollutants on molecular, cellular, organism and community levels; and the transcriptional and translational alterations of genes and their regulation under stress environments using genomic and proteomic analysis method. In recent years, he has published more than 50 papers in international academic journals, including Proteome Research, Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology, and Environmental Science & Technology, mainly as the first author and correspondence author for 36 papers. Twenty-four of his essays have published in the top 15 percent of journals. After his lecture, he gave an informal talk on applying for research funds.
