Associate Professor Department of Biology
Dr. Ji obtained his Doctor of Science degree (equivalent to Ph.D.) from Peking University in 2003. He then visited Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Cornell University Weill Medical College for postdoctoral training and research. Dr. Ji has mainly focused on developmental neurobiology. He is primarily interested in elucidating mechanisms regulating neuronal development by different signal pathways including retrograde signals derived from target tissues of axon. He also made progresses on studying the roles of local protein synthesis in axons and mRNA modification during neuronal development.
