Michael X. Zhu is a professor in the Department of Integrative Biology and Pharmacology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Texas. He received his BS from Fudan University, Shanghai, China, in 1984, and his MS and PhD from the University of Houston in 1988 and 1991, respectively. He was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Cell Biology at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, from 1991 to 1994 and an assistant researcher in the Department of Anesthesiology, University of California at Los Angeles, from 1994 to 1997. In 1997, he became assistant professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Neurobiotechnology Center at The Ohio State University. In 2000, he transferred his appointment to the Department of Neuroscience and Center for Molecular Neurobiology and was promoted to associate professor in 2003 and to professor in 2010. In 2010, he moved to his current position. Dr. Zhu’s research interests include several aspects of cell signaling, especially those that involve heterotrimeric G proteins and ion channels that affect Ca2+ signaling. Dr. Zhu’s main contributions include identification and characterization of multiple TRPC channels in mammalian species and determination of the molecular identity of endolysosomal Ca2+ release channels activated by the Ca2+ mobilizing messenger, nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate. Dr. Zhu has nearly 100 publications and is an associate editor of The Journal of Cellular Physiology and an editorial board member of Pflügers Archiv European Journal of Physiology.
