Xiaoxi is an entrepreneur and chemistry professional in the area of supramolecular assembly. She is the PI of multiple Federal funding awards for breakthrough cryoprotectants to enable enhanced biopreservation. From this work, she developed a novel hyper-effective and non-toxic polymer that behaves as an advanced cryoprotectant via biomimetic nanoscience, with the aim to enable safer transport and long-term biobanking for advanced regenerative medicine. Her company, X-Therma Inc. is selected as an industrial User at The Molecular Foundry, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory 2015-2018. Xiaoxi is a member of Society for Cryobiology and the California Life Science Association and serves as the Vice Chair of Younger Chemist Committee and an executive committee member of the American Chemical Society California section.
