BiographyYubing Xie, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) at the University at Albany, State University of New York (SUNY). Dr. Xie obtained her B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Dalian University of Technology, M.S. and Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. She received her postdoctoral training in stem cell biology and tissue engineering in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Ohio State University. After establishing the first stem cell culture laboratory at CNSE in fall 2007, Dr. Xie has initiated a research program focused on the interdisciplinary stem cell nanobiotechnology for understanding normal and diseased tissue formation and developing disease models and therapeutics for cancer metastasis, obesity and eye diseases. Dr. Xie has received the prestigious NSF CAREER award in February 2009. Dr. Xie’s research has been supported by NSF CBET, DBI and NSEC, NIH NIDDK, International SEMATECH manufacturing Initiative (ISMI), etc. She has published over 50 peer-refereed journal papers, e.g., Advanced Materials, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Biomaterials, Analytical Chemistry, Tissue Engineering. Dr. Xie is the editor of The Nanobiotechnology Handbook that was published by CRC Press in November 2012. She serves as editorial board member of the Journal of Tissue Science and Engineering and Journal of Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering, reviewer for NSF technical review panels, and scientific reviewer for 15 journals in the field.
