Haiqing Zhao, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Biology Date of Presentation : 2/9/2009 Title of Presentation : Mechanisms regulating sensitivity and response kinetics of olfactory sensory neurons Biosketch : B.A., Peking University; Ph.D., Yale University; Postdoctoral fellow, Johns Hopkins University Research Interests: Dr. Zhao is interested in understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the function and development of olfactory sensory neurons. Studying these neurons presents many opportunities to understand signal transduction, regulation of gene expression, and the development and maintenance of neuronal circuits. Olfactory sensory neurons generate electrical responses to encode odor stimulation. The signal transduction process, which converts the binding events between an odor molecules and an odorant receptor into the depolarization of cell membrane, involves a G protein-coupled, cyclic AMP second messenger-mediated pathway. Dr. Zhao is interested in studying how this signal transduction pathway is modulated, which should provide

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
