Professor Justin has extensive experience and a profound research foundation in the field of syphilis basic research, especially in the study of spirochetes. Since 1999, his research in the field of syphilis has been continuously funded by the U.S. NIH. He has jointly applied for 42 projects from the U.S. National Institutes of Health and other institutions, conducting in-depth research on syphilis spirochetes, with funding totaling over 30 million U.S. dollars. Currently, he has an ongoing syphilis project (NIH project) and has applied for a patent related to syphilis spirochetes. He has published over 200 research articles on infectious diseases, including syphilis research, with one syphilis-related study published in the prestigious medical journal "The New England Journal of Medicine." Additionally, he has been invited to speak at 125 conferences on syphilis spirochetes. He has also contributed chapters to two syphilis-related monographs: "Treponema and Brachyspira, Human Host-Associated Spirochetes" and "Treponema pallidum (Syphilis)."
