Hui Shen worked as a Resident, and was subsequently promoted to Assistant Professor in 1991, at the Department of Anesthesiology, Zhongnan Hospital affiliated to Wuhan University School of Medicine. In 2002, She joined the NIDA IRP as a Staff Fellow and Lab Manager in Dr. Yun Wang’s laboratory in the former Neural Protection and Regeneration Section at NIDA IRP. In June 2013, she was hired as a Staff Scientist within my Synaptic Plasticity Section, where she manages the laboratory and assists in monitoring existing projects and keeping the scientific trajectory of our laboratory on course. She is responsible for ensuring for the smooth operation of Dr. Bonci’s lab on a daily basis. She assists in monitoring a number of projects currently underway as well as train new fellows to help them get up and running with their own research projects in the lab. She has a wealth of experience at the IRP and is well equipped to handle the logistical and practical aspects of keeping a laboratory in good working order. She also assists me in the formulation and execution of future research projects in the areas of Molecular Biology and Optogenetics.
