Ying He, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy.
About Dr. He:
Dr. Ying He received her PhD in biopharmaceutical sciences from the University of Illinois, working with Professor Zaijie Jim Wang on opioid pharmacology. Staying in Chicago, Dr. He completed her postdoctoral training under the guidance of Professor Joseph DeSimone, a premiere researcher in epigenetics, at the University of Illinois Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center, as the NIH Sickle Cell Scholar. She is currently the recipient of the NIH Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00).
Research in Dr. He’s laboratory concentrates on: (1) understanding mechanisms of chronic pain and drug addiction, and (2) developing new pharmacological treatments for these conditions. We apply the power of molecular biology, pharmacology, behavioral neuroscience, pharmacogenetics, targeted delivery, bioinformatics, and other fields in our studies. Currently, several research directions are being pursued, including: (1) cancer-related pain, (2) sickle cell disease, (3) opioid tolerance and dependence, (4) genetics and epigenetics of pain, and (5) pharmacology of medicinal natural products.
