Personal profile

Dr. Xuewu Liu worked as an engineer in the optics industry for two years before undertaking postdoctoral training at the Indiana Center for Biological Microscopy at IUPUI Indianapolis. He then joined Ohio State University as a senior research associate in nanomedicine. He was appointed assistant professor of nanomedicine and biomedical engineering at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston in 2006. In 2010, Dr. Liu joined to The Methodist Hospital Research Institute, to direct the nanoengineering core.

Dr. Xuewu Liu is a leading scientist in silicon nanotechnology, with extensive experience in materials science, optics, microfabrication and nanomedicine. He directs research and development of silicon based biomedical nanotechnology, and coordinates a nanoengineering team to support biomedical research at the institute levels. The nanomedicine platforms he has developed include porous silicon particles, nanowire barcodes, an implantable nanochannel delivery system, nanowire enhanced nanofluidic devices, and nanoporous proteomic chips. Dr. Liu had been issued 8 US patents, and published over 100 peer-reviewed journal papers, of which >20 were highlighted as journal cover articles.

Research interests

Dr. Liu’s research focus is the development of silicon based nanotechnology platforms for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human disease. His current interests include mass production of porous silicon particles, surface chemistry of porous silicon, nanowire theranostic platforms, multifunctional nanoparticles, and microfluidics devices for isolation and analysis of exosomes.
