Brief Introduction

He is currently a distinguished professor and a doctoral supervisor in the School of Life Sciences and Biotechnology and the Institute of Natural Sciences at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He is a recipient of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholar and One-Hundred-Person Project of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Dr. He concurrently serves as the Secretary General and Member of Executive Counsel of the Chinese Society for Neuroscience, Member of Executive Cousel of the Biophysical Society of China, and Executive Editor of the journal Acta Biophysica Sinica. In 1995, he received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the Australian National University. During 1994-1997, he was a Research Associate/Research Fellow in the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at the Harvard Medical School. From 1997 to 1999, he was a NH&MRC Senior Research Fellow at the Vision Touch and Hearing Research Centre at the University of Queensland. From 1999 to 2004, he was a Research Fellow of the Laboratory of Retinal Structure and Function in the Institute of Neuroscience of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He was a Research Fellow in the Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences from 2005 to 2011. Dr. He’s laboratory is aimed to understand a broad range of biological systems specifically including the mechanism of signal processing and circuitry formation in brains by using mammalian retina as a model system, the regulation and developmental changes in the dendritic structure of retinal ganglion cells, and the mechanism of processing of visual signals for motion direction.
