    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Henry Lin is a Professor of Pediatrics in the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. He helps lead the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) in large consortium-driven, genomic studies involving ECG traits and atrial fibrillation. Through his efforts over the past 5 years, MESA participated in >35 genomic studies on ECG traits (e.g., heart rate, PR, QRS, QT, ectopy, and atrial fibrillation). Dr. Lin is also member of the NHLBI TOPMed ECG/Arrhythmia working group.

    Dr. Lin also conducts research related to genetic epidemiology and mouse models of colorectal cancer. His lab discovered the first gene-diet interaction involved in cancer predisposition. The interaction involves the glutathione transferase M1 null genotype and isothiocyanates (found in cruciferous vegetables). Later, his lab developed the concept of prostaglandin D2 as a tumor-preventing molecule.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
