Faculty Spotlight: Jianhua 'JC' Cang

The Department of Biology is delighted to announce the arrival of Dr. Jianhua 'JC' Cang, the Paul T. Jones Jefferson Scholars Foundation Professor of Neuroscience. The Cang lab uses mice as a model to study the neural basis of vision: how neurons in the brain respond to visual stimuli, what neural circuits give rise to such response properties, and how these circuits are established during development. With an integrative approach that combines physiology, imaging, genetics, behavioral, and computational techniques, Dr. Cang's research is currently focused on two structures in the visual system, cortex and the superior colliculus.Interested in learning more about Dr. Cang’s research or working in his lab?  Visit his website today!
