UTHSC Faculty Profile: https://uthsc.edu/faculty/profile/?netid=jjiang18

Dr. Jiang has long been dedicated to a better understanding of the pathophysiological bases of neuronal injuries and the discovery of new CNS therapies. During his early career, he had five years’ experience in biopharmaceutical industry (R&D and QC) in Shanghai after he received his MS degree in Biochemistry. Realizing that he could not advance his career without a PhD, he came to the U.S. in 2004 and received research training in neuroscience and pharmacology as a PhD student with Marie Wooten at Auburn University and as a postdoctoral fellow with Raymond Dingledine at Emory University School of Medicine. In January 2015, Dr. Jiang started his first independent academic position at the University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center, where he was a tenure-track assistant professor in the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy. He then decided to join the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in July 2018 as an associate professor in the College of Pharmacy and subsequently received tenure. Dr. Jiang’s research has led to over 60 peer-reviewed publications and six patents. As a PI, Dr. Jiang has been continuously funded by NIH since 2013 and received a number of awards including the NIH Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) and NARSAD Young Investigator Award.
