Tina (Liting) Wei

Postdoctoral Researcher

My primary interest lies in the study of neuron connections and signaling in both health and disease, particularly using human-induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) as a platform for disease modeling and drug discovery.

I have experience differentiating nociceptors, cortical neurons, and microglia from hiPSCs for disease modeling. To investigate disease mechanisms and effects, I employ a range of molecular analysis techniques, electrophysiology, and animal behavior assessments to evaluate potential pain-related drug therapies.

My current project involves exploring how circadian rhythms and proteins influence pain thresholds throughout the day and the potential for chronotherapy by manipulating peripheral circadian proteins in the sensory system.
