Wei is a 2017–2019 CCB Fellow and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) under the mentorship of Susan Amara. She is currently using functional genomics tools to study dopaminergic neurons and noradrenergic neurons in rodent models of ADHD.

Wei received her Bachelor of Medicine degree from the China Medical University before coming to the United States to pursue her Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience at the University of Rochester, where she studied transcriptomes and physiology of astrocytes in Maiken Nedergaard’s laboratory. There, she developed a strong interest in studying neurodevelopmental disorders.
