Prof. Yin has published 13 papers (total IF>100) as first or corresponding authors, wherein there are 6 articles with an impact factor over 10. His publications have been cited >1500 times (ESI = 1), with an h-index of 19. He has published 3 academic books and 6 authorized patents. Prof. Yin has won Shanghai High-level Talents (2021) and Special prize of president scholarship of Chinese Academy of Sciences (2016). Prof. Kun Yin is the PI of the environmental health research group. His research interests focus on biosensing and microfluidic technologies, which focuses on the optical biosensor development, infectious disease diagnosis and AMR surveillance, especially at the human-environmental interface under the one health concept. 1) bridges gaps among different fields and opens new opportunities for the development of novel biosensors with good sensitivity and selectivity, which have outstanding advantages in practical application. 2) applies interdisciplinary approaches to develop new tools and methods to solve current challenges in life sciences, such as disease diagnostics, medical therapeutics, as well as personalized medicine. 3) study about the wastewater surveillance of antimicrobial resistance at the human, animal & environmental interface to improve our understanding of how antimicrobial resistance spreads.
