Yong hui Jiang
Associate Professor, Departments of Pediatrics and Neurobiology
Duke University, School of Medicine, USA
Dr. Yong-hui Jiang is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Medical Genetics and an Assistant Professor of Neurobiology at Duke University Medical Center. In addition, he is an investigator in the Duke Institute of Brain Science and a member of the Duke University Programs in Genetics and Genomics and Cellular and Molecular Biology. He received his MD at Shanghai Medical College of Fudan University in China and his PhD in Human and Molecular Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine, where he worked in the laboratory of Dr. Arthur Beaudet. He completed a residency in pediatrics and fellowship in clinical genetics and biochemical genetics at the Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Jiang’s research program focuses on the molecular basis of neurodevelopmental disorders, with an emphasis on Angelman syndrome and autism spectrum disorder. In an effort to define the role of epigenetic modification and synaptic function in these conditions, he is employing cutting-edge molecular methods and powerful mouse models developed using gene targeting techniques.
