Yong-hui Jiang, MD, PhD

Division of Medical Genetics, Department of Pediatrics and Neurobiology, Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, NC, USA

Dr. Yong-hui Jiang is Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Medical Genetics and Professor of Neurobiology at Duke University Medical Center. In addition, he is an investigator in the Duke Institute of Brain Science and a member of the Duke University Graduate Programs in Genetics and Genomics and Cellular and Molecular Biology. Dr. Jiang is a physician scientist and active practicing physician at Duke Children’s Hospital and Duke Hospital. He received his MD at Shanghai Medical College of Fudan University in China and his PhD in Human and Molecular Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine under the mentorship of Arthur Beaudet. He completed a residency in pediatrics and fellowship in clinical genetics and medical biochemical genetics at the Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine. He is board certified in Pediatrics by American Board of Pediatrics, Clinical Genetics and Medical Biochemical Genetics by American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics. His clinical interest is inborn error of metabolism and genetic evaluation of neurodevelopmental disorder and rare disorders. He is the investigator of Duke Undiagnosed Network, a NIH supported program. Jiang’s research program focuses on to investigate molecular and neurological bases of human neurodevelopmental and neurobehavioral disorders, dissect the disease pathogenesis in human using genomics approach and in mutant mice models using neurobiological methods, and ultimately develop the molecular specific treatment for these disorders.
