[PINN 1-17] Hosted by Julius Zhu, Yanhua Huang, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA

Yanhua Huang, PhD has focused her research on neural plasticity within the reward circuitry of the brain. She studies molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying drug abuse and addiction and sleep-mediated regulation of reward-elicited behaviors. By studying neural plasticity in rodent models, she is working to characterize pathway-specific changes in the reward circuitry of the brain following sleep disturbances and identify molecular targets for new interventions for drug addiction, depression, and other related psychiatric disorders.
