Brief Description of Research Interest :

Dr. Wenqiang Chen earned his Ph.D. in neurobiology at The University of Hong Kong and is currently working as a postdoctoral fellow in the Zhang Lab at Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School and HHMI since February 2017. He is interested in the molecular and circuitry mechanism of the brain reward system and is trying his best to understand the pathophysiology of drug addiction. He has expertise in system neuroscience, using techniques including behavioral assays, neuronal tracing, stereotaxis surgery, as well as in vivo single-unit recording and in vivo Calcium imaging.

Dr. Chen is enthusiasm for participating in social activities and science-related events. Previously he served as multiple leadership in different associations and organizations, including Vice President of Student Union of School of Pharmacy during his undergraduate, President of Postgraduate Student Association of St. John’s College during his Ph.D.. In the spare time, he likes attending concerts in Symphony Orchestra and playing the violin alone or in the Orchestra. He is a big fan of classical music. He also loves doing gym and running along the Charles River.
