After receiving her medical degree from Beijing Capital Medical University in 1983, Jingjing took a position as a research assistant professor at the Navy General Hospital in Beijing. Then from 1989 to 2000 she worked in the Immunogenetics Laboratory at the Beijing Institute of Pediatrics and contributed to projects including the WHO DIAMOND Project, an IDDM molecular epidemiology in China, a study of CETP gene mutation in four Chinese populations and an HLA disease association study. After that, she worked for a year as a visiting scholar in the Genetic Epidemiology Unit at the National Public Health Institute in Helsinki, Finland where she studied HLA haplotypes of IDDM patients in different populations. In late 2001 she arrived at the University of Chicago and worked for the next 15 years in the Department of Neurosurgery, where she contributed to many different projects probing immunological and neurological systems in mouse and human models. Finally, in 2017, she joined the Esser-Kahn lab, where she assists with our immunoengineering studies in mice.
