Dr. Rui-Ping Xiao was trained as a physician-scientist in both China and the United States. She received her M.D. and medical training at Tong-Ji Medical University, China. In 1988, she went to the United States, and spent 20 years in National Institute on Aging (NIA), NIH, from a postdoctoral fellow to a tenured Senior Investigator and the Chief of the Receptor Signaling Section. Overlapping with her training at NIH, she also completed her Ph.D. study in the Medical School of University of Maryland from 1991 to 1995. Additionally, in 2005, she was invited by Peking University to serve as the Founding Director of the Institute of Molecular of Medicine (IMM) at Peking University (initially as a volunteer), and became a full-time returnee through the Chinese 1000-elite Program in 2010.

Over the past decade, Dr. Xiao has been serving as the Founding Director of the IMM-PKU. As the first autonomous research institute, the IMM-PKU was founded in January 2005, and was designed as a interdisciplinary research center reflecting of PKU’s focus on excellence in biomedical research and education. Dr. Xiao’s research has been focused on cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, with a major emphasis on a translational approach to take bench discoveries into clinically relevant situations. Ongoing research directions include signaling pathways involved in metabolic syndrome and associated cardiovascular complications. 

Currently, Dr. Xiao serves as a Council Member of the International Society of Heart Research and an Associate Editor of the New England Journal of Medicine and an Editorial Board Member of multiple international top journals.
