Tianle Xu, PhD

Professor and Dean, Faculty of Basic Medicine, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine

My research is in molecular and cellular neurobiology. My main work focuses on stroke and pain mechanisms with an emphasis on the role of acid-sensing ion channels in these processes. I published articles in Neuron, Journal of Neuroscience, Brain, Cerebral Cortex, Progress in Neurology, PLoS Biology, Cell Reports, Scientific Reports, Cell Research, Cell Death and Differentiation, Journal of Biological Chemistry, and Journal of Physiology. In addition, I am serving as editorial board member for: Molecular Pain (2005-); ACS Chemical Neuroscience (2009-); Frontiers in Pharmacology of Ion Channel and Channelopathies (2010-); Neuroscience Bulletin (2011-); and Journal of Neurogenetics (2012-).
