Biography & Introduction

Dr. Xue Xue obtained her Ph.D at National Center for Nanoscience and Technologies, Chinese Academy of Sciences, with her mentor Dr. Xing-jie Liang. From 2012 to 2014, she studied in New York University as a visiting scholar. Then she was an assistant professor with Dr. Hong Zhang at National Key Laboratory of Biomacromolecules, Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Dr. Xue is currently a principle investigator in State Key Laboratory of Medicinal Chemical Biology/College of Pharmacy, and lab chief of Laboratory of Theranostic Nanomedicine in Nankai University. In recent five years, she has authored over 15 SCI-indexed papers with total IF > 150. She has 7 published papers as first/corresponding author with total IF > 90, and the average IF is over 13, including Nature Nanotechnology, Molecular Cell, Nano Letters, ACS Nano, Small, etc.. She has also applied 2 nanomedicine-related authorized patents.

Research Contents:

Xue’s lab has long been engaged in the nanomedicine for their biological activation, structure-effect relationship, biological safety evaluation and the further mechanisms, committing to the application of nanomaterials in biomedical field, especially in animal model. The study included a number of major human diseases (cancer, Alzheimer's disease, drug addiction), and in-depth exploration of various mechanisms (autophagy, nerve regeneration, tumor resistance, etc.).

Welcome to the graduate students or postdocs to join Xue’s lab with the major of cell biology, medicine, pharmacy, materials science, and chemistry!
