Xinhua Lin, PhD

I am a senior research associate with extensive cell biology and molecular biology experience at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island’s Department of Pediatrics. My research focuses on the functions of small placental extracellular vesicles, called exosomes. We are actively investigating a newly recognized mechanism for intercellular communication—the cellular process by which microRNAs sort physiological and pathological conditions into the exosome.

Before I joined NYU Long Island School of Medicine, I led the regenerative medicine discovery and development programs at BioSET, Inc., a clinical phase biotech company. Before that, I trained as a research fellow at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center with a focus on the role of phospholipid signaling in response to ionizing radiation and chemotherapeutics.

When I am not in the laboratory, you can find me hitting the links on the golf course with my daughter or running to nowhere on the treadmill.
