Chi Xu, PhD.


Dr. ChiXu was introduced as an Associate Professor in 2016. In 2005, he graduated from the college of life sciences in Zhejiang University, where he received his bachelor's degree. In the same year, he engaged in the research on neuropharmacology in Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Sciences, where he received his doctor’s degree in pharmacology in 2010. From 2011 to 2016, he worked as a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Pharmacology of the University of Minnesota Medical School. He studied the effects of addictive drugs on adult hippocampal neurogenesis in the lab of Dr. Horace H. Loh and Dr. Ping-Yee Law. Dr. Chi Xu’s research career has been proved by his publications on a number of renowned journals, such as Stem Cells, Cell Mol Life Sci, J Cell Sci, etc.He also served as a reviewer of scientific journals, including Stem Cells, J Cell Mol Life Sci, J Cell Mol Med, J Neurochem, Oncotarget, etc. Dr. Xu is now a member of the Societyfor Neuroscience.
