Biography

Professor Jiao’s basic science work is focused on MicroRNAs, circulating tumour cells (CTCs) and liver regeneration. For the first time he described CTCs residing in organs local to pancreatic or colon cancers, and identified three mRNAs to differentiate benign from premalignant pancreatic cystic tumours. Furthermore, he has described a range of innovative surgical techniques performing a large number of laparoscopic liver and pancreatic resections including laparoscopic Whipple’s procedures. In liver surgery, he introduced radiofrequency assisted liver partition with portal vein ligation for staged liver resection (RALPP). In pancreatic surgery, he described longitudinal pancreaticojejunostomy following Whipple’s for pancreatic reconstruction, and laparoscopic Long’s sleeve pancreaticogastrostomy (LPG) for central pancreatectomy.

Professor Jiao has over 200 publications, including high IF journals as the first or senior author in Lancet Oncology, the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Gastroenterology and Annals of Surgery (publication link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=jiao+lr). His ambition is to improve the survival rates of pancreatic cancer.
