Dr. Jing-Chun Guo received her B.S. degree in Biochemistry from Fudan University in 1992 and Ph.D. degree in Integrative Discipline of Chinese and Western medicine from Fudan University in 2005. She joined Shanghai Medical University (presently Fudan University Medical Center) as a lecture in 1992 and currently an associate professor in the Institutes of Brain Science, Fudan University. Her research has focused on the molecular mechanisms of metabolic dysfunction-related neurodegeneration and signal transduction of cellular senescence in the brain. Dr. Guo has been responsible for 4 natural science foundation projects and published dozens of papers in international journals.
