Profile

 Dr. Li-Jun Kang is a professor in Neuroscience of Zhejiang University School of Medicine. He graduated from the Central China Normal University in 1996. He got his PH.D. training in Huazhong University of Science and Technology during 2001-2006, then he joined Max-Plank Institute for Biophysics and Chemistry (Germany) as a postdoctoral research fellow. After that, he moved to the Life Sciences Institute, University of Michigan, USA, and worked there as a research fellow during 2007-2011. In September 2011, he joined the Institute of Neuroscience, Zhejiang University (Hangzhou, China) as a PI. His main research interest is to understand genes and neuronal circuits underlying sensory transduction and behaviors, employing combinations of molecular genetics, opto-genetics, in vivo electrophysiology, function imaging, opto-genetics and behavioral tracking in a model organism C. elegans. His research supports include grants from the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the National Key Basic Research Developing Project of China, the National High Technology Research and Development Program of China (863 plan), Distinguished Young Scholars of Natural Science Foundation of Zhejiang Province and so on.
