Dr. Tian-Le Xu is dean of Faculty of Basic Medicine, professor and head of Laboratory of Neuronal Signaling at Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine. He completed his education BSc 1987; MSc 1993; PhD 1996 at Fourth Military Medical University, and did postdoc training at Department of Physiology, Kyushu University in the following years. In 1999, he was awarded CAS Distinguished Young Investigator Program (also called ‘one hundred talents’ program) to start Receptor Pharmacology Laboratory at Department of Neurobiology & Biophysics (as department chair during 1999-2003), University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei. He has served as a Principal Investigator and led Laboratory of Synaptic Physiology at Institute of Neuroscience, CAS, Shanghai before he moved to the present position. His current research focuses on neuronal signaling and related neural disorders with an emphasize on the role of acid-sensing ion channels in these processes. He is serving as editorial board member for the following journals: Molecular Pain (2005-); ACS Chemical Neuroscience (2009-); Frontiers in Pharmacology of Ion Channel and Channelopathies (2010-); Neuroscience Bulletin (2011-); and Journal of Neurogenetics (2011-).
