Yi Xuan, PhD

Dr. Yi Xuan received his PhD in material science from Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan. After graduation, he joined the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Tsukuba, Japan, where he worked on a national project to develop 45nm Si CMOS HKMG.

Prior to joining the McGowan Institute, Dr. Xuan was Assistant Professor of Surgery at Indiana University School of Medicine and Associate Director, Biomedical Engineering, Indiana Center for Regenerative Medicine and Engineering (ICRME). He also worked at Purdue University on various projects such as nanofabrication, nanoelectronics, and nanophotonics.

Currently, Dr. Xuan’s research focuses on developing the next generation of tissue nanotransfection (TNT) devices, nanochips for exosome detection, and novel biochips for wound healing applications. His lab uses computational simulation to investigate TNT mechanisms at the nanoscale, and designs and fabricates the next generation of TNT nanochips for pre-clinical and clinical applications. His lab also designs and manufactures nanophotonics devices for detecting exosome biomarkers for point-of-care clinical applications in wound healing and regenerative medicine. He has authored and co-authored more than 100 publications.
