Title: Professor, PhD supervisor

Professor Zhou graduated from West China Medical University with a bachelor's degree in 1985. She received a master's degree in medicine from West China Medical University in 1994 and a PhD in medicine from Sichuan University in 2003.

Member of the Chinese Society of Anatomy, member of the Sichuan Society of Anatomy, editorial board member of the Journal of Jiangsu University (Medical Edition), and peer review expert of the National Natural Science Foundation of China.

Research areas:

Professor Zhou's main research direction is regeneration and repair after mammalian central nervous system injury. Her research found that after partial dorsal root injury, the spinal dorsal horn and intact dorsal root ganglion can synthesize some neurotrophic factors to promote intact dorsal root sprouting on the medial branch of the spinal cord. Acupuncture can strengthen this process. In recent years, she has been involved in the study of the mechanism of nerve damage in diabetes. The experimental results suggest that the neuronal apoptosis of some brain stem nuclei caused by chronic restraint stress may be an important cause of insulin-resistant hyperglycemia. The above research results provide a theoretical basis for the mechanism of central nervous system plasticity and the mechanism of acupuncture; it also opens up new ideas for the study of the pathogenesis of diabetes.

Academic achievements:

So far, Professor Zhou has published 30 academic papers in Chinese academic journals. Published more than 10 academic papers in international academic journals, among which the more influential professional magazines Apoptosis, Neuropeptides, Autonomic Neuroscience: Basic and Clinical, Cell Transplantation. As the project leader,she presided over 2 National Natural Science Funds, 1 Provincial Science and Technology Commission Fund, and 1 School-level Youth Fund. As the main researcher, he participated in the research work of nearly 10 topics at all levels. Editor-in-chief and 15 textbooks. Won the "First Prize for Excellent Teaching" of Sichuan University, the "Excellent Young Teacher" Award for the "One Professional and Multi-ability" Talented Activity of 100,000 Middle School Students in Chengdu, the "Top Ten Teacher Ethics Award" of Sichuan University, and the "Excellent Class Teaching Quality" Award "and" Tang Lixin Teaching Master "awards.
