Dr. Guo is an Assistant Professor at the University of Calgary, Canada. Her research is focused on primary cilia – hair-like, signaling antennas on virtually all cells used to gather information about their environment. Cells in the brain are particularly vulnerable to primary cilia impairment, which can be associated with intellectual disabilities and autism spectrum disorder. Dr. Guo aims to investigate how primary cilia contribute to the brain’s functional wiring and related disorders. She received her PhD from Kent State University and completed her postdoctoral studies at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
