      Dr. Ji's research interests include cellular organelle (endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi, lysosome, mitochondria) stress and liver disease, hyperhomocysteinemia, hepatotoxicity of anti-HIV drugs and alcohol, molecular mechanisms of pathogen-host interactions, and tacking drug/alcohol intoxication with nanotechnology.

      Dr. Ji graduated and worked as a faculty at SJTU in 1985, earned his PhD from University of Kentucky, and completed two fellowships in Pathology/Medicine at University of California and Keck School of Medicine of USC, respectively. He joined faculty of Keck School of Medicine in 2002.
