Chunhui Xu's Biography



Chunhui Xu, Associate Professor, Emory University School of Medicine

Chunhui Xu, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics, Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Xu has extensive research experience on stem cells and cardiogenesis. Her research is focusing on cardiomyocytes derived from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs), which hold promise for cardiac cell therapy, disease modeling, drug discovery, and the study of developmental biology. Her group has made significant contribution to the field of pluripotent stem cells. Several of their publications have been identified as a hot paper or among the most highly cited publications in the field of hPSCs. She is an inventor or co-inventor of 17 issued US patents, and her publications have been cited more than 8,900 times according to Google Scholar.

Cardiac muscle cells derived from stem cells have the potential to be used to repair damaged heart tissue and to model cardiac disease.  Cardiac muscle cells can be derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells using factors that regulate cardiogenesis.  However, practical use of these cells faces challenge in efficient cell production.  We have found that combining tissue engineering and microgravity can improve the quality of cardiac cells derived from stem cells.
