Xiaohu (Tiger) Xie, Ph.D.

Dr. Xiaohu (Tiger) Xie has a scientific background in pharmacology with broad experience in neurobiology, behavioral neuroscience, psychopharmacology, and analytical chemistry. During his graduate work at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Dr. Xie studied cocaine-induced behavioral sensitization using neuropharmacological and analytical chemistry techniques. He continued his research in drug addiction as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he focused on investigating the neurobiological mechanisms of environmental stimuli-induced cocaine relapse, cocaine memory reconsolidation, and drug context-induced impulsive decision making. Dr. Xie received a National Institutes of Health (NIH) exploratory/developmental research grant award (R21), and became an Assistant Professor of Research in the Department of Chemistry at North Carolina State University in 2013. Dr. Xie’s genuine interest for science has helped him gain a broad knowledge of technology development in general, and encouraged him to make contributions to the scientific community as editorial board member and reviewer for multiple scientific journals. Dr Xie thrives working with strong teams of scientists in highly collaborative environments. In his free time, Dr. Xie volunteers in the pharmacy at Urban Ministries of Wake County.
