  • Brief Introduction:Dr. Jia, Tianye is an Associate Professor/Principle Investigator at Fudan University, Institute of Science and Technology for Brain-Inspired Intelligence (ISTBI), and his research mainly focuses on neuroimaging and behaviour genetics. After his graduation from Fudan University, Dr. Jia received his PhD in computational genomics from the University of Birmingham, and joined the world leading Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London (now also known as Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neurosciences) and research project ‘IMAGEN’, which is a longitudinal European collaboration project with complete neuroimaging, behaviour and genetic information of 2000 individuals and focusing on reinforcement-related behaviours.
