An experienced and tenured physician, Dr. Lin has worked as a medical consultant out of his Middle Tennessee home office since 2014. Boasting more than five decades of expertise in his field, he retired from his full-time commitments after more than 15 years as a staff physician at the Clover Bottom Development Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

As a seasoned genetic researcher, Dr. Lin conducted extensive studies on the structure and function of human red cell carbonic anhydrases, the structure and function of mutant hemoglobin, as well as biochemical genetics of human hemoglobin disease.

Supporting his local community, Dr. Lin has also served on the board of directors of Knoxville Alcoholic Services and the Nashville Taiwanese Association.
