Dr. Xu is originally from China where he received his initial medical training. Drawn by the opportunity for the harmonious integration of medicine and engineering, he came to the University of Texas at Arlington and completed his doctoral training in bioengineering. Subsequently, he completed his postdoctoral fellowship at UT southwestern Medical Center. Dr. Xu’s research is focused on cardiovascular biology and the treatment of cardiovascular disease using bioengineering approaches.
