Biography

Professor Yin Xiao is a professor in Bone and Tissue Engineering at Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, Queensland University of Technology (QUT). He is the Director of Australia-China Centre for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine and a group leader of the bone and clinical research program. He obtained his BDSc and MDSc from Wuhan University (Hubei Medical University), China, with more than 10 years clinical experience. In 2000, he graduated with a PhD from School of Dentistry at the University of Queensland, Australia, and worked as a research officer there for two years following his graduation. This was followed by an NHMRC Peter Doherty Fellowship at the School of Life Sciences at the QUT. In 2004 he was awarded an NHMRC Visiting Fellowship for 6 month at the Bone Tissue Engineering Centre at the University of Carnegie Mellon, PA, USA. During this period (2003–2007) he was also appointed an Honorary Research Advisor to the School of Dentistry, UQ. In 2012 he was appointed a Professor of Bone Biology and Tissue Engineering at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at QUT and has been appointed to a number of honorary senior positions in several Universities, including currently an adjunct professor at Griffith University and three Chinese universities: Wuhan University in Wuhan; Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, and Fujian Medical University in Fuzhou.
