She attended Harvard University where she obtained a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Chemistry before attending the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine for medical school. During medical school, she developed an interest in molecular biology which inspired her to pursue a PhD at Yale University where she studied tight junction assembly in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Caplan. She completed her pediatric residency at Washington University in St. Louis/St. Louis Children’s Hospital. As a resident, she worked with Dr. F. Sessions Cole and Dr. Jennifer Wambach to identify candidate genes and gene variants associated with birth defects by analyzing whole exome sequences. Jingshing’s research and clinical interests include furthering our clinical and molecular understanding of how maternal health can have an impact on infant health outcomes. Outside of medicine, she enjoys running, hiking, and being outdoors.
