Research Interests:

The Xu laboratory is focusing on human cardiomyocytes derived from pluripotent stem cells, which hold promise for cardiac cell therapy, disease modeling, drug discovery, and the study of developmental biology. The laboratory is also collaborating with investigators in Georgia Tech, Emory University, and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, exploring the application of nanotechnology and tissue engineering in stem cell research.
