Ye He

Ye He joins the ASRC from the University of California, San Francisco’s Department of Physiology, where she was an HHMI Research Associate working with Yuh Nung Jan. Her research interests span the interface between Neuroscience and Cell Biology, as she focused on characterizing the function of ion channels activated by gentle touch mechano-sensation and brain tumors, employing two photon microscopy in live animals and 3D imaging. He’s studies were published in Nature and Nature Neuroscience.

He received her PhD in Molecular Genetics, Microbiology & Immunology from the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey and Rutgers the State University of New Jersey, Piscataway. She earned her BS in Biochemistry from Nankai University in Tianjin, China. As manager of the Live Imaging and Bioenergetic Facility, she will work with researchers to study dynamic changes at the cellular level in living cells and in intact organisms through two photon microscopy, Airyscan confocal microscopy and other 3D imaging techniques.

Research Interests

Her research interests span the interface between Neuroscience and Cell Biology, as she previously studied the function of ion channels activated by gentle touch mechano-sensation and brain tumors. Her current research focuses on dynamic changes of neuron-glia interaction during development and disease at the molecular and cellular level in living cells and in intact organisms through two photon microscopy, Airyscan confocal microscopy and other 3D imaging techniques.
