Profile

Dr. Ying Shen is a Qiu Shi Distinguished Professor of Zhejiang University, a winner of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholar, and a New-Century Talent of the Ministry of Education of China. Prof. Shen has been systematically studied in three aspects of neurotransmission, synaptic transmission and plasticity, functions and regulatory mechanisms of neural transporters, and myelin development. He has found a number of important molecules and modulation mechanisms critical to neural transduction and integration, and related diseases. His major work has been published in high-profile journals, including Nat Neurosci, Neuron, PNAS, J Neurosci, Glia, and so on. His research has been funded by 973 Project and Major Scientific Research Project of Ministry of Science and Technology of China, National Natural Science Foundation, Zhejiang Natural Science Foundation, and so on. He is the editor or editorial board member of several scientific journals, including Scientific Reports, Cerebellum, and Neurochemistry International.
