Guoying Bing graduated from Jilin Medical College, China, in 1977. He received his Ph.D. degree in neurobiology at the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, University of Rochester, NY, USA, in 1988. His thesis is related to neurotransplantation in Parkinson’s disease. After his postdoctoral training in molecular neurobiology and neurochemistry at New York University, he joined a research group at the National Institute of Environmental Health as a Senior Fellow, where he studied molecular mechanism of excitatory neurotoxicity and neuron-glial interaction in dopaminergic neuronal cell death. He became an assistant member in Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation in 1996 where he directed his research in neuroinflammatory response in animal model of Parkinson’s disease. He was recruited as an Associate Professor (Tenured) since 2000 at the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Bing is an active member at NINDS Study Section ZRG1 since 2007 and an ad hoc member at the Department of Defense, Medical Research, USA. He is an Ad Hoc Reviewer at the Medical Research Council, UK. Dr. Bing has published more than 85 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals. His researches are founded by the National Institute of Health, Department of Defense as well as private foundations. His major research interests and accomplishments are in the environmental etiology of Parkinson’s disease and the role of neuroinflammation in neurodegenerative diseases.
