Guo-Qiang Bi is a Xinchuang Professor of Neurobiology and Biophysics and Changjiang Scholar at University of Science and Technology of China, and Director of Interdisciplinary Center for Brain Information at Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He received his B.S. in physics at Peking University, Ph.D. in biophysics at UC Berkeley and postdoctoral training at UCSD. Before joining USTC, he was an Associate Professor of Neurobiology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. His research interest is on the biophysics of neuronal systems, especially that related to plasticity and learning. His early work includes computational rules and cellular mechanisms of spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP). In recent years, his lab has employed cryo electron tomography to investigate in situ structure and organization of proteins inside synapses, and developed new imaging techniques to dissect brain circuits from rodents to primates.
