Dr. Cuiqing Zhu received his B.S. degree in Hygiene from (former) Shanghai medical University in 1987. He obtained his M.S. degree in Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine from (former) Shanghai medical University in 1990. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine in 2002 from Fudan University. Since 1990, Dr. Zhu has been working at Shanghai Medical University (presently Fudan University) in Department of Neuroscience, State Key Laboratory of Medical Neurobiology and Institutes for Brain Science. His research has focused on the pathogeneses and prevention treatment of neurodegenerative disorders, especially Alzheimer’s disease.
