Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences; Researcher of the Institute of Neuroscience; Chinese Academy of Sciences; Honorary Professor of the Life Sciences College of the Chinese Academy of Sciences
Dr. Aike Guo, graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University, Dept. of Biophysics, in 1965. He received Dr.rer.nat.with< Summa Cum Laude> from Munich University, Germany, in 1979. He has been a visiting scholar funded by Max-Planck-Society in MPI for Biological Cybernetics from 1982 to 1984. He became an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2003. Now he is a senior investigator and head of the Laboratory of Learning and Memory at Institute of Neuroscience (ION), Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences (SIBS), and he is also research professor of State Key Laboratory of Brain and Cognitive Science, Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. During the past of 25 years, he has been engaged in the study about the learning /memory and decision making using fruit flies (Drosophila) as a model organism. His long term goal is to precisely analysis of neuronal circuit-network mechanisms underlying the intelligence,. He was the principle researcher of State 973 projects (Major State Basic Research Program Grant) “Brain Development and Plasticity” (2000-2005); “Brain Plasticity in Structure and Function” (2006-2008)，and as well as the principle researcher of the “Strategic Priority Research Program” of the CAS: Mapping Brain Functional Connections” (2012--2017). He has been awarded by the 2nd Prize of Natural Science by the CAS in 1993; HLHL Prize for Life Science in 2006; and Distinguished Scientist Award of Asia Pacific Neural Network Assembly in 2008.
