Prof. Yi-Xian Qin
Stony Brook University, USA
Dr. Yi-Xian Qin is Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Orthopaedics, the Director of Orthopaedic Bioengineering Research Laboratory at Stony Brook University, and a founding faculty member of BME. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Medicine and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), and Member of the International Astronautics Academy (IAA). His research has been focused on musculoskeletal tissue regeneration and translation through physical regulation and characterization of tissue quality, as well as evaluating the mechanisms responsible for tissue remodeling. The laboratory is currently interested in the areas of bone tissue engineering, mitigation of bone loss, implant fixation, bone fluid flow controlled bone remodeling and cellular activities, promotion of fracture healing and regeneration, and ultrasonic diagnostics and therapeutics for osteopenia and fracture. The lab has extensive experience in cellular culture and mechanistic evaluation, various in vivo models, and ultrasound imaging. His work has been continuously funded by NIH, DOD, NASA/NSBRI, and industries for the last two decades. He served as Chair of the Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering Special Int. Group of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), and Board of Chair of ICMRS. He has published more than 100 peer-reviewed paper and book chapters in musculoskeletal research journals and books.
