The Pharmacology Dept. would like to congratulate Dr. Yingtang Shi (Bayliss Lab) on her recent promotion to Assistant Professor of Research in Pharmacology, effective 3/25.
Her research focuses on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms controlling the retrotrapezoid nucleus (RTN), a key brainstem chemoreceptor region that controls breathing.
Yingtang recently published her work on a PACAP peptidergic brainstem system in mice that is activated immediately at birth to support breathing (Nature 589: 426-430, 2021).
She will continue to work in the Bayliss Lab, but with this promotion Dr. Shi moves forward from Senior Professional Research Staff to Faculty in the department.
Way to go, Yingtang! We are grateful for your outstanding contributions to research! Your promotion is definitely well-deserved!
