Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
This is Bichen Xue, M.D., a research fellow in Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. I received a well-defined training in Urology Clinic and basic urological research at Central South University. Since 2015, my study focused on benign prostate hyperplasia and prostate cancer with the supervision of my mentor Professor Xiongbing Zu.
I joined Dr. Aria Olumi laboratory at Harvard Medical School in January 2018. The objective of my current research is to investigate whether obesity and inflammation regulates the epigenetic change of steroid 5-alpha reductase 2 (SRD5A2) and promotes prostate growth in adult via increasing aromatase activity in the prostate.
