Mentor: Dr. Guo-Ping Shi
Xuyu obtained her Bachelor and Master of Internal Medicine in 2008 from Sun Yat-sen University. In 2016, she received her PhD from Guangdong Cardiovascular Institute. Her primary focus is on myocardial fibrosis caused by, for instance, ischemia, hypertension, and cardiomyopathy. Xuyu also established multiple clinical data cohort models combining basic research. Her work promotes translation from basic research to clinical applications.
Under the mentorship of Dr. Shi, Xuyu will use molecular biological approaches to understand the underlying mechanisms of myocardial fibrosis after ischemia.
