Jie Gao, PhD

Dr. Jie Gao is an Assistant Professor in Department of Neuroscience at The Ohio State University (OSU). His laboratory is dedicated to the study of the neurodegenerative diseases, particularly Alzheimer's disease (AD). His research seeks to elucidate the molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating amyloid aggregation and glial responses in AD. Prior to joining OSU, Dr. Gao received his PhD training at University of Pittsburgh, and his post-doctoral training at University of California Los Angeles. As a trained molecular biologist, Dr. Gao is fully committed to advance our understanding of AD, develop new disease-modifying therapies for AD, and make a difference for individuals suffering from this devastating disease.
