Dr. Xuewu Sui has been long dedicated to improving our mechanistic understanding of lipid metabolism. He is well-experienced in lipid research and has a particular fascination with the structure and function of lipid metabolism proteins located at membranes and how their functions participate in affecting human physiology. Dr. Sui will continue his passion in lipid research and his future research will center on elucidating the metabolisms of major lipid molecules (e.g., fatty acyl-CoA, cholesterol, triacylglycerol, etc.) in humans and other organisms. Dr. Sui also teaches courses where he seeks to get his students actively engaged with the content of his courses and grow in their passion for biochemistry and structural biology.
