He received his PhD from University of Lausanne in Switzerland. Dr. Yuanyuan has conducted research in stem cell, cell therapy, tissue engineering, biomaterials, and regenerative medicine in andro-urology for more than 20 years. Dr. Yuanyuan was the first to demonstrate that stem cells exist in urine and that those cells (urine derived stem cells, USCs), with self-renewal and multipotent capacity, have a number of potential applications in cell-based therapy in treatment of renal insufficiency, graft rejection after renal transplantation, interstitial cystitis, urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, or lower urinary tract reconstruction. In addition, Dr. Yuanyuan is able to isolate, culture and characterize stem cells from other body fluids, such as breast milk, amniotic fluid, joint synovial fluid and menstrual blood, for potential use in various tissue repair or diagnosis of the diseases in the relative tissues.
