Professor Jin-Shing Chen received his MD degree and PhD degree at National Taiwan University, and his specialty training in Surgery and Thoracic Surgery at the National Taiwan University Hospital. In 2002, he was a research fellow at the MD Anderson Cancer Center of The University of Texas, USA. Now, Prof. Chen is Professor and Chief of Division of Thoracic Surgery, Department of Surgery, National Taiwan University and National Taiwan University Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan and Director of Department of Medical Affairs, National Affairs, National Taiwan University Hospital Taipei, Taiwan.

Prof. Chen has been actively involved in clinical and basic researches in thoracic surgery, pulmonary medicine, and oncology such as the treatment for primary spontaneous pneumothorax and minimal invasive surgery for lung cancer. Currently, he published more than 160 SCI research articles. He developed minocycline pleurodesis as an adjuvant therapy to prevent pneumothorax recurrence for patients with primary spontaneous pneumothorax and published several prospective randomised clinical trials in top-ranked journals, such as The Lancet (2013). He also developed novel operation techniques for early lung cancer surgery, such as “nonintubated anesthesia for thoracoscopic surgery” and “CT-guided dye localization of pulmonary nodules for uniportal VATS”. Using these techniques, early lung cancer can be managed via precision and minimally invasive ways. The results were published in top-ranked surgical journals, such as The Annals of Surgery. Currently he also served as the Deputy Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Formosan Medical Association and Journal of Thoracic Disease and editors of the Scientific Reports and the Journal of Asian Surgery.
