His Patients Buzz

Xiao-Qiang Yu, Associate Professor, Biology, UM Kansas City

Xiao-Qiang (Sean) Yu is looking for a way to cure disease, but he has never been to medical school. His diagnoses take place under a microscope, not on an examination table, and his primary patients don’t talk much—instead, they buzz. By studying insect immune systems, Yu is learning how to prevent disease in humans, and give medicine another weapon against infection.

The UMRB does very well to support new investigators, especially at critical times when bridge funding is needed.
