Jimmy Hsu

Jimmy earned a B.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering and Environmental Science at National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan. He then spent two years in Dr. Chun-Liang Pan's lab at National Taiwan University, working on tubulin-mediated polarized synaptic vesicle transport. After obtaining his M.Sc. in 2012 — and one year of military service — he returned to the Pan lab as a Research Assistant for another two years, studying the mechanism of activity-dependent mitochondria fragmentation in C. elegansneurons. In 2015, Jimmy joined UMass Medical School, Dr. Marc Freeman's lab, studying the mechanism of dSarm-mediated axon and bystander responses to injury in Drosophilafruit flies. He moved with the Freeman lab to the Vollum Institute, OHSU, in 2016, and completed his Ph.D. in 2020. He joined Dr. Marc-Tessier Lavigne's lab in 2021, and is working on understanding the molecular mechanisms of axon plasticity in response to sensory deprivation in adult mice.
