Xin Yu

Xin Yu,
Case School of Engineering

Xin Yu research focuses on investigating the structure-function and energy-function relationship in normal and diseased hearts using advanced magnetic resonance imaging technology. This research requires the in depth knowledge of biochemistry (e.g., the Krebs Citric Acid Cycle for energy) and physiology to examine the normal and pathologic structure of the heart, and the myriad of technologies (from electronics to physics) behind MR imaging and how it can be used as both an imaging and chemical spectroscopic tool to probe the heart's function. Using mouse models of human diseases (that beat up to 600 times per minute), Xin has pioneered new understanding of cardiac diseases.

Many of her trainees have received the prestigious American Heart Association pre- and post-doctoral fellowships while under her direction. In 2008, she was the recipient of the Case School of Engineering's annual Research Award.
