Neuroscience & Non-Communicable Diseases

Dr Zhi Yi Ong is a DECRA fellow in the School of Psychology, UNSW.

She completed her PhD in biomedical science at the University of South Australia in 2013, where she investigated the impact of maternal diet on offspring food preferences and neural changes in the central reward system. During postdoctoral training at the University of Pennsylvania, USA, she examined the function of neuropeptides, their signaling pathways and the contribution of extra-hypothalamic regions in the regulation of energy balance.

At UNSW (since 2017), Zhi Yi is interested in understanding the gut-brain circuits that mediate feeding behaviours and has extended her research program into understanding neural mechanisms of addiction. Zhi Yi is currently receiving funding from ARC and NHMRC, is on the committee of the Faculty of Science Early Career Academic Network and the NSW Australian Society for Medical Research.

All welcome. Drinks and nibbles from 3:30pm, seminar starts, 4pm.
