南加州台灣生技協會五月份 Coffee Chat
SoCal TBA 本次榮幸邀請到美國加州大學聖地牙哥分校生命科學院的蘇稚盈副教授（Dr. Chih-Ying Su）來與我們喝咖啡。蘇教授著重神經科學基礎研究，專精於嗅覺受體神經元如何接受不同氣味的訊息，研究成果發表在《Nature》、《Science》、《PNAS》等著名期刊。本次活動她將分享：
Do you know how to land a job in academia in the US? Are you currently a Ph.D. student feeling a bit stressed out? Or are you a postdoc planning to apply for academic jobs?
Come join us for our Coffee Chat on May 21. Dr. Su will share her life story from an international graduate student to a UCSD professor. Let’s learn from her experience and tips for you to succeed in your pursuit of Ph.D. and academic positions. In this event, she will discuss:
Dr. Chih-Ying Su is an Associate Professor in the Section of Neurobiology, Division of Biological Sciences at UC San Diego. She received her B.A. in Zoology from National Taiwan University and Ph.D in Neuroscience from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She conducted her postdoctoral research with Dr. John Carlson at Yale University.
Dr. Su’s laboratory focuses on addressing how olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) process odor information since these neurons are the primary source of sensory input. Their current research topics include: (1) how compartmentalization allows insect ORNs to process information through ephaptic interaction, and (2) how neuromodulation can act on ORNs to regulate responses and influence odor-guided behaviors in Drosophila.
Dr. Su has been the recipient of a Mette Strand Young Investigator Award. She and her colleagues have published research articles in prestigious journals including Science, Nature, PNAS, Nature Communications, Current Biology, eLife and Neuron.
