Min Jun is Scientia Associate Professor and Senior Research Fellow at the George Institute for Global Health, Faculty of Medicine, UNSW Sydney.

He holds a PhD (2012) and MScMed(ClinEpi) in clinical epidemiology from the University of Sydney. Min was previously an NHMRC Early Career Fellow (2013-2016) based in Canada (University of Calgary), co-funded by two additional competitive federal/provincial Canadian fellowships (CIHR/AIHS).

Min’s research interests include the use of large trial and real-world, linked population based data sources to better understand current and potential clinical management of people with kidney disease, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. He has developed and leads international projects involving a multidisciplinary team of researchers from Australia, Canada, US and across Asia. Examples of this work include:

1) Systematic reviews and meta-analysis - systematic reviews in high-risk populations with chronic disease e.g. fibrate (Lancet) and antioxidant therapies (Cochrane Review), surrogate outcomes for end-stage kidney disease (JASN) and dialysis intensities (CJASN), with first/senior author publications in high impact journals;

2) Large cohort studies: large population-based studies assessing the safety of existing/new medicines in chronic disease using trial and routinely collected data (published in the BMJ, AJKD among others); ongoing projects Min leads include NHMRC-funded project assessing the safety of direct oral anticoagulants in patients with atrial fibrillation and chronic kidney disease (involving 4 Canadian provinces and NSW).

Min's research track record includes >100 publications (including publications in top-ranked journals e.g. BMJ, Lancet, JACC), >$5.1M in research funding from top-level funding agencies (e.g. NHMRC Project Grant, MRFF, CIHR). To date, 72% of his work is published in top 10% journals worldwide, has been cited >4500 times including in some 24 international clinical practice guidelines across various fields.
