Duojia (DJ) Pan is a professor of molecular biology and genetics at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) investigator. His most important accomplishment is the discovery of the Hippo signaling pathway, a central mechanism that regulates tissue growth in animals ranging from insects to humans.

Using the fruit fly Drosophila as a model system, his laboratory made a series of discoveries that allowed them to decode the key molecular events in the Hippo pathway.
