Education and professional record: 09/1997-07/2001, Bachelor,Nankai University,Biochemistry and molecular biology 09/2001-07/2008, Ph.D., Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Chinese Academy of Science 12/2008-02/2014, Postdoctor,Georgia Regents University , USA 02/2014-06/2015, Assistant Research Scientist, Georgia Regents University, USA 06/2015-Present, Professor,The Institute of Translational Medicine,The First Affiliated Hospital,Zhejiang University   Research interests: Synapse is a communicating contact between two neurons or a neuron and its target cell. It’s a fundamental unit of neural circuitry and enables complex behaviors.Neuromuscular junction is the synapse between motoneuron and skeleton muscle, controlling our movement. My researches try to better understand 1.The mechanisms of synapse formation and synaptic plasticity; 2. The pathogenesis of neurological disorder such as Myasthenia gravis (MG), Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS),Alzheimer's disease(AD); 3.
