In 2010, Dr. Yinghui Fu received her Ph.D. degree in genetics from Jiaotong University and then she joined the Institute of neurobiology of Fudan University. In 2016, Dr. Fu was employed in the Institute of brain sciences of Fudan University. Dr. Fu is mainly engaged in the research on the development of neural synaptic circuits in mammalian cerebral cortex. Dr. Fu was awarded “the Young Scientist Award of neuroscience in the Yangtze River Delta”at 2019.

Molecular and cellular biology, genetics, electrophysiology, pharmacology, photogenetics and animal behavior were used to study the development of synaptic circuits in mammalian cerebral cortex. Our research reveals the developmental characteristics and molecular mechanism of synaptic circuits formed between different neurons.We expounds how the cerebral cortex forms neural synaptic circuits and attempts to reveal the mechanism of how these neural circuits process information.
