Prof. Henning Ulrich studied Biology at the Universities of Hamburg and Kiel (Germany) and performed his master thesis in Biochemical Parasitology, followed by a PhD. in Biochemistry and Neuroscience at the University of Hamburg, Germany. He completed his training by postdoctoral research at the Center of Molecular Neurobiology of the University of Hamburg and Cornell University. He was appointed as a faculty member and is now Full Professor and Head of the Laboratory of Neuroscience at the Dep. of Biochemistry at the Institute of Chemistry of the University of São Paulo, Brazil.
Dr. Ulrich has published more than 160 papers in peer-reviewed journals (H-factor of 37, ca. 4,000 citations), 4 books and about 30 book chapters and filed for patents. He is a specialist on purinergic and kinin signaling and was President of the Brazilian Society of Purinergic Signaling and Associate Editor of the peer-reviewed journals Purinergic Signalling, Cytometry A, Stem Cell Reviews & Reports and PLOS ONE. He has published 27 manuscripts in Cytometry A and is Councilor and Education Task Force and Innovation Committee member of ISAC. He has organized more than 10 national and international congresses in Brazil
Dr. Ulrich’s research lines include neurogenesis and neuronal repair mechanisms in vitro and in vivo, focusing on kinin and purinergic signaling and established novel concepts for these signaling. Furthermore, he is a pioneer on using aptamers for identification of stem and tumor cells and works with drug screening, calcium signaling. Flow and imaging cyometry is used for achieving the goals of his research.
