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
