Dr. Xianhua Chen received her B.S. degree in Biophysics in 1990 and her PhD degree in Physiology & Biophysics in 2003 from Fudan University. She entered the State Key Laboratory of Medical Neurobiology from 2006 as an associate professor and is currently a full professor. Her research interest is the regulation of gene function in neurodegenerative diseases and cerebral ischemia, with a focus on the neuronal-protective function and the underlying mechanism of the up-regulated expressed genes in astrocytes after cerebral ischemia and in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease. She has published a number of research papers in the peer-reviewed international journals such as J Neurosci, Glia, J Biol Chem, J Neurotraum, etc.
